“BEARS BEARS BEARS”

CAROL CUNNINGHAM
  • Carol Cunningham

Citing the discovery of a bear statue “fashioned some 15,000 to 20,000 years ago,” director Oana R. Ghiocel’s 2015 documentary The Bear Cult reminds viewers that “the lion was not always king.” Admittedly concerned by “ecosystems and the histories we are writing,” environmentally focused local artist Carol Cunningham charts a creative exploration into bears as a creature that inadvertently connects “powerful gods and celestial beings” with nighttime protectors and plush commodities. Focusing on 20th-century interpretations of the genus Ursus, Cunningham’s “BEARS BEARS BEARS” takes shape in a window-oriented installation encompassing audio and visual works enhanced with living pine trees. Free, 3-6pm Sat, Clamp Light Artist Studios and Gallery, 1704 Blanco Road, Suite 104, (620) 218-1568, clamplightsa.com.
