From the Chauvet caves of Southern France to the anthropomorphization of dogs in C.M. Coolidge’s Dogs Playing Poker (originally commissioned by ad-men in 1903 to sell cigars), a fascination with animals has always been reflected in art.

And for that fascination, curator and sculptor Marcia Polenberg has named Clay Gallery's spring show For the Love of Animals.

Ten Michigan artists were invited to interpret creatures from the animal kingdom using various media. The results create a diverse and thought-provoking show that features large scale installations. Paintings depicting animals hang throughout the gallery. 

Runs through Monday, June 16.

Gallery hours: Monday-Thursday 12-8pm | Friday-Saturday 12-9pm | Sunday 12-5pm.

Clay Gallery, 335 S. Main St.(734) 662-7927.
