Man’s Best Friend
April 29-May 28, 2011
Thursday, April 28, 7-9pm
It has become evident that the pursuit of peaceful coexistence is paramount with one another and with the creatures that live amongst us. The time is long overdue to achieve a harmonious balance in the interest of saving our planet.
For this exhibition artists have created work that captures the ideal, peaceful cohabitation amongst creatures and the human species. Through contrasting, positive imagery, this exhibition will present humankind living in harmony with creatures that may otherwise be thought of as a threat, a product, an impingement, or seemingly irrelevant to existence. Embracing the ideals of cohabitation, rather than the need to dominate and control, will be examined.
This work emphasizes no matter how great the external differences, a balance can always be found. The aim of this exhibition is to be ultimately inclusive despite enormous amounts of versatility and diversity amongst the creatures in the natural world.
Artists: David Camisa, Sharon Christian, Olivia Creighton, Gary Eder, Marion Edwards, Zahida Jaffer, Francis Johnstone, Moira Klassen, Sharka Leigh, Bernadette McCormak, Frank Zeidler
