Opening Reception: Saturday, October 31, 2015, 2:00 - 4:00pm
Andrew Denman: The Modern Wild is the first ever solo museum exhibition of the artist's work. Thirty-five original paintings as well as preparatory studies, drawings, and photographs, will showcase Denman's artistic evolution and art-making process. Visitors to this exhibition will find themselves captivated, challenged, and informed by images that push the boundaries of the wildlife art genre. A poet as well as a painter, Denman uses nature's innumerable inspirations not as a template for illustrative mimicry, but as a springboard for metaphor seldom seen in animal art.
