uBe Art promises a jolt to your imagination by the bizarre and beautiful creatures brought to life in the upcoming February exhibition, as well as revived appreciation for art as agent connecting us all on a core level.

Creatures--real and imagined explores the ways in which animals and creatures, both real and imagined have been a presence in the visual arts as metaphors, objects of fantasy and fear, sources of emotional attachment and connection to the physical and non-physical realms.

The 20 featured artists hail from cities around the US, delivering a diverse show full of whimsy, fantasy and beauty. Covering a wide spectrum of medium, each piece delivers a tale unique to its creator.
