Some Kind of Monster
When I was a little kid, Leonard Nimoy was just as famous for hosting the paranormal creep show In Search Of ... as he was for his cold, logical dispatching of all things scientific on the bridge of the USS Enterprise. The In Search episode that quested after the legendary Bigfoot monster was the stuff that fueled most of my childhood nightmares before I was faced with the all-too-real zombies and vampires one encounters in middle school. In years since, the still-becoming-respectable fringe science of cryptozoology has sought to identify, classify and prove the existence of legendary creatures like Bigfoot as well as supposedly extinct beasts like the dinosaur that might be the Loch Ness Monster. Here in Nashville, six artists are conducting a search of their own via the canvas.
