Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle is hosting a great-looking group show this coming weekend called A Cabinet of Natural Curiosities. From the press release:

The mysterious links we have with animals are integral part of our psychological
make up. As humans we treasure them, fetishize them, turn them into symbols,
anthropomorphize them, and at the same time inflict terrible cruelty upon them.
We allow horrific injustices in slaughterhouses to occur and decimate their
habitats, yet offer our children stuffed animals for comfort and have whole
stores devoted to pampering your pet. The way we relate to the other creatures
living on the planet relates directly to the way we view ourselves. This show,
while leaning more towards the fanciful rather than the political, offers up a
wunderkammer like display of creatures, while addressing many of the issues
raised above.

The roster of artists lined up for this show is amazing–Junko Mizuno, Liz McGrath, Jim Woodring, Kozyndan, and MAKE‘s own Mark Frauenfelder among others–so if you’re in Seattle, be sure to stop by. Link.
