In its way, Peggy Bacon's art is an act of faith. So strong is her belief in the peopleness of people - -even in feline form - - that she persuades us to stop worrying for a moment about the ultimate fate of nations and mankind, to recognize and appreciate the irrepressible and eccentric vitality that keeps our domestic world alive.Joshua C.
