Description: Inspired by the All Creatures Great and Small series of books by veterinary surgeon James Alfred Wight, under the pen name James Herriot, the upcoming Juried Members Exhibition celebrates the breadth of life in our world. From the fluttering butterflies of James McNeill Whistler to the grazing cows and sheep of William Preston Phelps, animals grace the walls of the Whistler House. In partnership with the Lowell Humane Society, the Whistler House Museum of Art invites artists to create works of art and scenes which include animals, birds, fish, and insects, both domestic and wild. Works in any medium will be considered, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, fiber art, and photography. Share with the world all the amazing creatures that influence and inspire us.

Jurors: Patrick McCay is an Irish-born, Scottish/American painter and a Professor of Fine Arts at the Institute of Art and Design at New England College. He holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland as well as a Master’s in Fine Arts from the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. He has exhibited around the world, including in London, Glasgow, Sydney, Lisbon, New York City, Chicago, Savannah, Boston, and Lowell.
