“Critters” represents three groups of work – wildlife, farm animals, and pets – in situations that may be heartwarming, entertaining, or even poignant for the viewer.
The show not only includes the “critters” we interact with every day, but also those that may have been forced from their habitats as our human territory expands, and others that may soon disappear forever.
“Critters” will feature over 100 artists not only from Maine but also from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York, Wisconsin, Connecticut, and Florida.
This is the seventh “Critters” show that Nancy has curated during her long career as a gallery director. Past exhibits include three summer shows at the Cry of the Loon Gallery, South Casco, Maine; “City Critters,” at her gallery, Davidson and Daughters Contemporary Art, Portland Maine; “Critters,” presented at Studio E Gallery, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida; and “Critters Revisited” at The Gallery on Chase Hill, Kennebunkport, Maine.
There will be a broad selection of indoor and outdoor sculptures by Laura Balombini, Jeff Barrett, Lise Besu, Peter Beerits, Rush Brown, James Budish, Clara Cohan, Nantz Comyns, Squidge Davis, Donna Dodson, Dan Falt, Ed Friedman, Edwin Gamble, Eva Goetz, Don Gove, Craig Berube Gray, Carole Hanson, Charles Jenkins, Mark Kendschi, Nance Kahn, Al Kronk, Bernard Langlais, Cheryl Lichwell, Steve Lindsay, Lin Lisburger, Cabot Lyford, Lou Mastro, Andy Moerlin, Marjorie Moore, Bryce Muir, Jean Noon, Leo Osbourne, Elizabeth Ostrander, Patrick Plourde, Roger Prince, Riv Pyne, Andy Rosen, M.Ruth, Sharon Townsend, Edith Tucker, Tacha Vosburgh, Kitty Wales, Sharon Wandell, Ann Weber, and John Wilkinson.
