Animals in the Arts
Presentation and Book Signing
Tuesday, October 18, 2011, 6:30 pm

Alexander Gray Associates is delighted to present Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, speaking on animals in the arts.

In this engaging and visually stimulating presentation, California-based author Colleen Patrick-Goudreau shares a variety of film clips, pieces of literature, and works of visual art that will change the lens through which we view animals in the arts. Join us for an evening of food for eating and food for thought! Patrick-Goudreau will sign her books, and they are available for sale at the gallery."When people think of animal-themed films, literature, or art, they most likely think of animated children's movies, sentimental stories, or provocative documentaries and books that focus on the suffering of animals," notes Patrick-Goudreau. "However, sophisticated works of art from around the world and across the ages explore our relationship with and exploitation of non-human animals; reflecting the joy that comes from the former and the distress that comes from the latter." She further elaborates, "These are not animal advocates making these films, writing these stories, or creating these works of art. They are artists who cannot but reflect in their art what is arguably the most fundamental relationship in our lives; that between humans and non-human animals."

The award-winning author of several books, including the bestselling The Joy of Vegan Baking, The Vegan Table, Color Me Vegan, and Vegan’s Daily Companion, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau contributes to National Public Radio and The Christian Science Monitor and has appeared on The Food Network and PBS. Her fifth book, The 30-Day Vegan Challenge, was recently published by Random House.
