ART | Juan Perdiguero's "Simios" 

Humanity tends to have a sociopathic regard for non-humans, but this isn't uniformly the case, nor was it always this way. Listening to Jane Goodall speak about what she has learned from closely observing great apes is itself a transformative experience.

Three years ago, artist Juan Perdiguero was asked to create a site-specific installation for an old liquor factory-turned-gallery in his native Spain. The result was a series of 25 life-sized, ink-on-prepared-photographic-paper drawings of apes, each of which took about 12 hours to create, and possess strikingly detailed expressions full of recognizable emotions. The artist says he means for the images to serve as mirrors to the people who see them.

Through October 30, FLCC's Williams-Insalaco Gallery 34 (3325 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua) is hosting 10 of these drawings in "Simios: The Work of Juan Perdiguero." The public is invited to an opening reception with the artist from 1 to 3 p.m. and reception from 4 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 2. Perdiguero will give a talk about his work at 2 p.m. the same day, in room C404.

The Williams-Insalaco Gallery 34 is open Monday through Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.; and Saturday-Sunday, noon-5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 785-1369 or email gallery34@flcc.edu.
