St. Lucie Cultural Alliance recently debuted “Fur, Feathers & Fins,” a new animal-themed art exhibition at the Alliance Gallery. Unveiled at the July 15 iteration of Art Walk, the exhibition is being hosted in partnership with the Sunrise Humane Society. More than thirty artists across mediums are represented in the exhibition.

“Art has a powerful ability to connect people and bring them together,” said curator Terry Long. “Our members can bring an animal’s personality to life in their paintings, so we came up with the idea to partner with the Sunrise Humane Society to use that as an opportunity to help animals find loving homes.”

Alongside “Fur, Feathers & Fins,” patrons will see “I’m Still Standing,” an exhibition created in collaboration with The Inner Truth Project. The initiative paired survivors of sexual trauma and professional artists to create unique works of art from upcycled and recycled materials that tell the stories of strength, survival, and perseverance. “I’m Still Standing” is on view to August 25 and will close with a reception and a screening of Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines, before traveling to Riverland Land in Port St. Lucie and the Elliott Museum in Stuart. Wonder Women! is part of the Film Summer Series presented in collaboration with the Treasure Coast International Film Festival.
