The Bedford Gallery received over 400 artist submissions for this juried show. After much deliberation, our jurors have selected 58 artists from around the U.S. to participate. The artworks chosen by our jurors represent a range of media, from traditional sculptural and painting practices to conceptually oriented mixed media installations.
Peaceable Kingdom explores the role animals have played in our shared cultural and artistic imagination. The history of human and animal interaction is filled with tales of failed domestication, unusual friendships, and fearsome predators. From Kipling’s ferocious Shere Khan to early imperial menageries, human fascination with the animal kingdom has run the gamut from emotional connection, to economic exploitation, and even scientific curiosity. Throughout all of these interactions, however, the sense of wonder we feel when we encounter animal life has been an enduring theme that has informed their continued and abiding presence in the visual arts.
