The Art League of Henderson County announces: “All Creatures, Great and Small”  

As December days slipped by, your furry and feathered friends know that spring is around the corner,
 growing anxious for summer.  As life isn’t all springtime, so to those that hold special memories, their voices still echo in your ears, they will remain as one of us.  Cecil Frances Alexander, a poet and hymn writer in 1800s, she is best known for this simple poem – ‘All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.’  “All Creatures Great and Small” (named from the second line of the poem) is based on James Herriot’s tales of a late-1930s Yorkshire veterinarian.  In its 2020 television adaptation, Dr. Siegfried Farnon assures his new hire surgeon that, “The animals are the easy part. It’s the people cause all the bother.”  It’s the people that the animals touch.  Artists are invited to create artworks of their favorite animal subject, with a picture in mind - the story of quiet joy that the animal tells.
