Coyote Connections

The Shaman Carole Whela

October 9, 2014 - January 15, 2015

Coyote Connections is an exhibition of works by 32 Maine artists celebrating the Coyote and its relationships with the wild, their land, fellow wildlife, prey, families—mates, pups and parents—and with us humans as well. The works include sculpture, drawings, photographs, prints and paintings created in styles both figurative and abstract. Our Native People have revered the Coyote for its ancient wisdom, spirituality and wily adaptability—the trickster. These works of art will capture the coyote’s play, pain and joy as well as its connection to urban dwellers, rural folk and farmers, those who hear Coyote’s song and those who don’t.

This exhibition is a unique collaboration of Art and Science, the inspiration of conservation biologist Geri Vistein, co-curated by Anne B. Zill, and the expression of a group of talented Maine artists. There will be a series of six separate educational programs to reach all ages, to inspire us and enrich our lives with an understanding that our humanity is connected to all life on this planet.

Artists include: Susan Amons, Donna Asmussen, Michael Boardman, Mary Brennan, Sandra Crowell, Evelyn Dean, Evelyn Dunphy, Kathleen Fox, Anne Garland, Melissa Glendinning, Gretchen Halpert, Forest Hart, Carolyn Heasly, Glenn Hines, Janice Kasper, Richard Brown Lethem, Jacqueline Maloney, Mark McCollough, Judith Mitchell, Leslie Moore, Linda Murray, Jean Noon, Mary Beth Owens, Rebekah Raye, Jessica Rhys, Linda Shepard, Elizabeth Starr, Gwen Sylvester, Lisa Tremblay, Helen Warren and Carole Whelan.

An Opening Reception will be held on October 9, 2014, 5-7 p.m. UNE Environmental Studies Professor Noah Perlut will introduce the research video he and his students prepared showing the coyote’s nocturnal eating behavior in the Biddeford Campus fields.
