Explore “Animalia” and learn more about the lives of some of the most precious animals

Once again, the City of Southlake is partnering with APEX Arts League to present a fall art exhibit in Town Hall. This year we are pleased to present “Animalia,” an exhibit portraying beautiful animal works of art by Charice Cooper. The exhibit will run through Friday, November 6 in Town Hall or virtually on the Public Art webpage.

“Animalia” features unique works of art highlighting animals considered vulnerable, endangered or critically endangered such as the Western Lowland Gorilla and a Polar Bear.

For those not yet comfortable to visit Town Hall or those who would like to know more about Ms. Cooper they are encouraged to view the virtual tour that was created and posted on the Public Art website.

“This year’s exhibit will look a little bit different than in years past,” noted Southlake Arts Council Chair Miriam Murray. “But it was important to us to create the opportunity for everyone to be able to view the beautiful pieced Charice created in a way that was safe and from the comfort of home. These really are exquisite pieces and I hope everyone is able to enjoy them.”

About the artist

Charice Cooper was born and raised in the DFW area. Raised in a very musical and artistic family where creativity was encouraged and well nurtured. While she enjoyed music and dance, animals and art were her deepest passion. Tightly and beautifully intertwined, one passion continuously fueled the other through countless hours devoted to both.

Despite her upbringing, she found herself in the corporate world for many year, her paint brushed sitting untouched. Turning to art for as a stress relief, in 2000, she left the corporate world to become a full-time artist.

At first, murals were the staple of her business and as the diversity of her clients’ requests expanded, so did her repertoire. As time has passed, she has transitioned her time to paint behind an easel more.

“Left to my own devices, I return to what is near and dear to my heart, animals,” said Cooper. “It is my deepest hope to motivate others to action by bringing awareness to the immense challenges animals face, as well as provide a renewed appreciation of their existence by capturing their essence through the instruments of my craft.”
