“To enter Santa Fe’s Peters Projects at the moment is to be transported into a hunting-lodge-cum-bestiary, with a decidedly 21st-century twist. The gallery’s current group show Trophies and Prey: A Contemporary Bestiary, curated by Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio, offers a survey of sculpture focused on animals—and humankind’s fraught relationship with them.” -Artsy
