Sarah Jeffries: "Mankind’s treatment of animals has always been questionable. With the recent rise of animal rights activism on social media, people are hungry for change in response to horrific stories surfacing around the world: an American dentist trophy hunting in Africa, the appalling treatment of dogs and cats caught up in the meat trade in Asia, news of UK diary cows being kept inside like battery chickens, dogs in puppy farms in the UK forced to have up to thirty puppies and kept inside tight unsanitary spaces, to name but a few. All of the artists in this exhibition want to help create positive change through their art and have been working on thought-provoking pieces to challenge how we look at the world and all its inhabitants."
