Shannon Johnstone, , Grantee Link >
Shannon Johnstone is Professor of Art at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC and previous CAF grantee. She received a grant for an art exhibition called “All Creatures Great and Small,” which will feature the work of five female artists, including herself, Lee Deigaard, Jo-Anne McArthur, Traer Scott, and L.A. Watson. She writes:
Animal advocacy and ethical non-human animal representation are not typically themes explored with depth or breadth within fine arts. Our goal is to expand aesthetic inquiry and engage in the larger ongoing discourse on our relationship with animals. We are curating an art exhibition exploring moral considerations toward animal representation.
