This new series at the Huntsville Museum of Art in Huntsville, AL is focused on regional contemporary artists with shared sensibilities.
This exhibit showcases the work of husband and wife artists Diane Fox and Beauvais Lyons from Knoxville, Tennessee, whose lithographs and photographs use animals as the key protagonists in their works. Fox’s black and white and color photographs document the artificial displays and stuffed animal specimens found in natural history museums worldwide, emphasizing their removal from the natural world. Lyons creates exquisitely crafted lithographs that parody the pedantic scientific prints of the nineteenth century and hint at new truths.
