Collaborative Show Blends Work of Three Artists To Explore Human/Animal Connection

“The Beast and Me,” the upcoming show at the Chandler Gallery, is replete with scenes of a child’s imagination. In their execution, the sculptures and drawings by Leslie Schomp, Andrea Scofield Olmstead and Mary Kenny feel lifelike, but their subjects are touched with the whimsy, curiosity and tenderness common in childhood fantasies.

In one sculpture, a woman in a white gown wraps her arms around the waist of a large brown bear, his claws hovering tentatively over her shoulders; it’s an embrace or slow dance frozen in time. In another, a small lion rests gently on a boy’s head as he closes his eyes. His expression is so tranquil that he seems lost in a dream.

Animal/Human Hybrids
For centuries humans have imagined creatures that combine human and animal characteristics such as sphinxes, centaurs  and mermaids. These creatures have held positions from anywhere to gods to characters in modern popular culture.

This workshop will use paper collage as a process to prompt ideas about the invention of such characters.  The students can then use their collages as a guide or inspiration to sculpt a clay creature from their imagination.
