A series of imaginary animal hybrids in watercolor, painted collaboratively by Megan Lynn Kott and Justin DeVine.
The term Chimera comes from Greek mythology. It described a fearsome creature composed of a lion, a goat and a snake. Today the word is also used to describe genetic amalgamations such as a "geep" (a goat-sheep) or the natural fusion of anglerfish. Chimera is a truly collaborative show in that each painting in this collection was worked on by both artists. Each piece combines the artists' styles and brush strokes to create a chimera of many sorts. These works signify the artists' interest in the natural world and play with a casual surrealism, not unlike the traditional artist's exercise Exquisite Corpse. Both artists hope you enjoy the work and exploring the details contained therein.
Come join us for an interactive workshop to explore the ancient oceans of North America and the creatures that lived within! Paleontology educator Susan Liebl leads a series of hands-on activities, including the excavation of fossils in the field, art projects that blend imagination with science, and live music with movement. Through creativity and fun, indoors and out, you can meet the 85 million-year-old swimmers of the deep!
