On Saturday, April 5th, Flower Pepper Gallery is pleased to present Of History And Hope, a collection of extinct, endangered, and exotic animal inspired works as portrayed by over 50 diverse and talented artists. All of the works that exist within this exhibition are created to inspire us to recognize and respect the value in all living beings and in hopes that the human race may become more conscious and considerate of the bond between ourselves and the animal kingdom. The Magical Bond Between Man And Beast, an article by Pat Shipman, states, "The human bond with animals is mental, emotional, physiological, physical, and at least partly genetic. People have evolved to live with animals; and in this ancient connection lies the evolutionary roots of empathy, tolerance, and the ability to understand another's perspective."

10% of the proceeds from Of History and Hope will be donated to Lions, Tigers & Bears: A Large Cat & Exotic Animal Rescue located in San Diego County. Lions, Tigers & Bears' main objective is to provide a safe haven for the exotic animals they rescue, as well as to education the public about the growing population of abandoned and unwanted exotic animals and where they come from. Lions, Tigers & Bears' founder Bobbi Brink states that, "After witnessing the heart-breaking phenomenon known as the 'exotic animal trade' and seeing the victims of this business, I was compelled to do what I could to help these animals."


  

Each artist participating in this exhibition has been carefully selected, so that once woven together, the gallery will be transformed into an incredibly fantastic painted menagerie.

  

"I love animals and nature. They are my inspiration. My works depict dreamy and imaginative places full of animals and mysterious spirits. A place where wild animals and I could feel safe and secure. There is nothing more beautiful than when you actually see a wild animal in nature. However, we rarely see them where they are supposed to be, and just don't know how amazing they are to be alive."
- Of History And Hope artist: Kisung Koh
