Stephanie Copoulos-Selle’s new exhibit of printed works invites viewers to envision the undersea journey of imaginative hybrid creatures, and to think more broadly about the effects of globalization.
“Migration of the Seapirs: From Florida to Cuba” opens with a reception on Sunday, April 8, from 1:00-3:00 p.m., and will include a talk by the artist at 2:00 p.m.
The Alfons Gallery installation immerses viewers in a printmaker’s fantasy underwater environment of animal hybrids. Viewers will wind their way through printed hangings that depict an imaginary Florida-to-Cuba migration of Copoulos-Selle’s “Seapir,” a hybrid sea turtle and tapir. As they follow the Seapir’s journey, gallery visitors will encounter other wildlife combinations from Copoulos-Selle’s imagination.
