Opening the Abend Gallery’s 2016 schedule is a fascinating exhibition that features captivating portraits, fantastical settings, and incredible technique inspired by animals and wildlife.
Opening January 29 at the acclaimed Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado, is “Animalia” — an enthralling group exhibition that surveys the depiction of animals in a variety of ways by some of the most talented representational artists.

The exhibition includes, among others, Yael Maimon, Benjamin Björklund, Henry Schreiber, and Teresa Elliott, and, says the gallery, “each artist is armed with a unique sense and perspective on the subjects they portray. From the hyper-realistic … to hilarious anthropomorphic marmots, there is something for everyone in this exhibition.”
