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.
NOTE: This exhibition contains content that some viewers may find disturbing and may require further discussion.
All Creatures Great and Small is supported by a Kenan Funds grant and Culture and Animals Foundation grant.
An Artist Panel Discussion will be held in Kresge Auditorium on October 24 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. followed by an Artist Reception in Gaddy-Hamrick Weems Gallery from 5:30-7 p.m.
The exhibition is part of Meredith’s School of Arts & Humanities common theme for 2019-20, Activism: Then and Now.
All events related to the exhibition are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are weekdays 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and weekends 2-5 p.m.
