New Meredith Exhibition Features Work by Artists Dedicated to Animals

All Creatures Great and Small, a new art exhibition at Meredith College’s Weems Gallery, features five female artists who are dedicated to animals and activism. The exhibition’s running dates are October 14- November 10, 2019.

While they each take a different approach (fine art, journalism, video installation, and commercial work), the heart of their work explores the lives, traumas, triumphs, and most of all, the individuality and importance of a few of the many nonhumans with whom we share the planet.

Artists include Lee Deigaard, Meredith College Professor of Art Shannon Johnstone, Jo-Anne McArthur, Traer Scott, and L.A. Watson.
