Dogs of all statures, shapes and forms will be on view at the 21st Dog Themed exhibition at the Wilde Meyer Gallery September 5 running through September 28. The exhibition is titled “Dog Days 21.” Over 30 different artists show off their interpretations of our furry friends.
Connie Townsend depicts the unreserved and extroverted personalities of dogs in “in your face” portraits or as action trucker or motorcycle driving dogs.
Judy Feldman’s narrative paintings feature the vicarious adventures of her companion, a Wheaten Terrier named Cleo.
In Jaime Ellsworth’s paintings, dogs are represented as flat, colorful shapes in various scenarios such as playing in a park or napping with companions.
Tracy Miller presents vibrant canines in her expressionist paintings using splashes and splatters of color contrasted with controlled brushwork. Stephano’s paintings present larger than life happy dog portraits in pop art colors. Everyone loves Trevor Mikula’s fun paintings that portray elastic canine caricatures in awkward poses. Also showing will be dog paintings by Patricia Hunter, Andrea Peterson, Judith D’Agostino and many others.
“Dog Days 21” runs September 5, 2013 and continues through September 28, 2013.
