The Animal Kingdom
And when, on the still cold nights, he pointed his nose at a star and howled long and wolflike, it was his ancestors, dead and dust, pointing nose at star and howling down through the centuries and through him.
- Jack London, The Call of the Wild
Nucleus presents a collection of visual work proclaiming admiration for the animal world. A global roster of talent seeks to capture the diversity of beasts that tromp the earth, soar its skies, and swim its seas. We live as the minority among majestic and almost magical creatures each having a place in the cycle of nature. They inspire man's imagination and come to us in our dreams. It would be a lonely world without such an amazing spectrum of life.
Over 70 works of art will be on display in a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, watercolor, ink, graphite, paper cut, stoneware, and more. Select art prints from contributing artists will be released.
