In animals we see those characteristics that make us human.
'Animalia' brings together works from a considered collection of Arthouse Gallery artists whose practice, in part, explores the animal world around us.
Celebrating the diversity of wild and not-so-wild life, this cross-disciplinary exhibition features works from Melbourne ceramicist Janet Beckhouse and painter/sculptor Dean Bowen, Brisbane painter Kate Bergin and artist Kendal Murray, from Sydney. Together these artists capture the diverse characteristics of animals both real and imagined and make comment on our need to conserve the various environments that make biodiversity possible.
'Animalia' is dedicated to the memory of Janet Beckhouse (1955 - 2020).
