Creatures sometimes comfort us – their human buddies. Sometimes they comfort each other. Often times we can observe them in situations of comfort. They are always a joy to view. Artists participating include: Chaille Trevor, Judy Feldman, Connie Townsend and others.

Sometimes art evokes feelings, sensations – a sense of nostalgia from somewhere deep in our memory psyches. Maybe a visual similarity, color or energy draws the viewer to like a piece of art or maybe even dislike it. That is what art is about. Art can provoke or soothe – make us feel happy or sad and these feelings could be based on life experiences.

WILDE MEYER ANNEX specializes in animal art. Some artists paint animals as the main subject, others paint or sculpt animals in situations – real or imagined. Connie Townsend substitutes animals in place of humans in exciting situations. Judy Feldman includes animals in inviting rooms and gardens to show a sense of scale and comfort. Artists like James Swanson include animals in landscapes to invoke a sense of nostalgia and appreciation of nature. Still others make the animal the complete picture, whether realistic or reincarnated with imaginative colors.
Opening Reception: August 4th, 2016 Closing: August 27th, 2016
WILDE MEYER GALLERY is well known for its colorful eclectic art presentations. Even though WILDE MEYER ANNEX specializes in animal related art, these pieces can be in splendid color also. This show presents animals in imaginative hues to downright conjured up hues. Some of the artists showing, like Theresa Paden, portray close up images of realistically proportioned animals in outrageous colors. Other artists, like Jaime Ellsworth, add the real punch of color through complicated compositions. Greg Dye uses gigantic slashes of vibrant color to create iconic bison. Other artists use traditionally painted subjects surrounded by color.
