From the Center for Contemporary Arts:
“JACKRABBIT JOURNEY, a solo exhibition by Abilene artist, Linda Stricklin, is currently on view in Gallery 4 at the Center for Contemporary Arts. The jackrabbit is the primary subject of Stricklin’s current work. The exhibition features more than two dozen sculptures and a dozen or so two-dimensional works that center around the jackrabbit, or the hare, as the subject. In Irish folklore, the hare was a sacred and mystical animal to the Celts, a symbol of abundance, prosperity, and good fortune. Shapeshifters would often take the form of a hare. Stricklin’s work creates creatures out of clay with mixed-media components, including copper enamel. Stricklin’s process shows the texture of their fur, movement, and muscle tone. She says each piece has its personality and story and is interconnected in some way or another.
