Four Philadelphia artists come together with a unique presentation of work informed, nurtured, and galvanized by animal imagery and nature. Using different media and different approaches, and sharing an interest in exploring the complex interconnections among human, animal, and plant life as the implied subtext, these artists share in their appreciation for aesthetics and craftsmanship, as well as a mutual love of sensuous detail, texture, and mark-making.

All four artists maintain a unique respect for traditional technique, conceptual thinking, and emotional sensitivity to bring awareness to the role of animals, birds, and other creatures in human lives.

Artistic contemporary heroic struggles are those we impose upon ourselves as well as those imposed from the outside by society. The groupings reflect the many labors of the mythic figures and heroes that are metaphors for the artistic struggle. They are as timely today as was they mythology in antiquity.
