Brian Keith Stephens at the Lyman Allyn: Almost True Tales

April 1 @ 10:00 am - May 30 @ 5:00 pm

Brian Keith Stephens

In Almost True Tales, artist Brian Keith Stephens explores his fascination with animals as mythic symbols across time and culture. In vibrant, figurative paintings, Stephens draws on iconography, fables and folk tales from around the world to invest his animal subjects with meaning and emotion, revealing a common cultural language that resonates with children and adults alike. At a time when the constant and omnipresent flow of information makes it harder than ever to identify what is true, Stephens’ work encourages viewers to recall the simple virtues embodied by animals in countless tales. These enduring folk wisdoms are a source of solace and a reminder that human decency can prevail and help the world to heal in even the most difficult times.

At the Lyman Allyn Art Museum  thru May 30th.
