“Snake!” The mere mention of the word can send shivers up a spine…
Gathered in this collection are the works of four regional artists who have been brought together, not only by their craft, but their shared appreciation for the creatures you see here and the desire to change common perception. It is the artists’ hope that a closer look at the elegance of movement and beauty of form of these animals captured in their works will allow viewers to see these creatures in a new light.
In Serpents & Circles we see metal, wood and stone transformed into the curving fluidity of reptiles and amphibians. Through surrounding ourselves with their elegance and motion, we can finally see them clearly.
“My wish is that after seeing our exhibit, visitors will develop a kind of ‘enlightened cherishing’ for these creatures, meaning the more you see and know, the more you care, and the more you care, the more you see and know.” – Sally Myers
