I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.

Memoirs from the 6th Great Extinction Works by Kim Scott
September 9th – October 28th GWF Energy and Souza Galleries
Kim Scott is a celebrated visual artist and arts educator from Sacramento, California. Memoirs from the 6th Great Extinction features a body of work referencing the endangerment and loss of species and habitats. Through Scott’s romanticized portraits, she explores nature and the human condition. Equally beautiful, mysterious and funny, her paintings move through realism and surrealism incorporating both classical techniques and contemporary adornments.
Opening Reception Saturday, September 9th from noon to 2 p.m.
Gallery Talk with Kim Scott Saturday, October 7th from noon to 2 p.m.
All of these associated events are free and open to the public!
