WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE
by Asher Jay

Weaver Room Gallery
May 7 – July 5, 2021

Where the Wild Things Are speaks to both the wonder of and the challenges diminishing the natural world across the globe. Eight charismatic works featuring some of our favorite wild creatures in bright splashes of paint, pieced scraps of paper, and graffiti open a dialogue about the complex power and necessity of the natural world and all of the ways their existence is being threatened.
