CAT PERSON. DOG PERSON. OPENING TODAY: 2pm-4pm! A show celebrating our love for our furry friends!

Well it's been a little while since we've updated the blog. Such busy times at the gallery, preparing and planning for more great shows coming your way.We just took down the successful PRE-SHRUNK show, but don't delay if you missed an opportunity to see it in person, as we plan on hanging selections of the works throughout the coming months in the gallery and over at one of our favourite restaurants, CHIVES.

But...let's get on to the tasks of this blog! TO INVITE YOU TO ATTEND this afternoon's opening reception-beginning at 2pm.  Our show is simply called CAT PERSON. DOG PERSON. and it's  a playful celebration of all things cat and dog. MEOW! BARK!

With 28 artists participating, we decided to hang the DOG PERSON works in our upper gallery. That way actually dog people can bring their dogs to see the art! The CAT PERSON works are mostly in the lower gallery, however cats have seemed to invade the dog space a bit...but you'd expect that from a cat, wouldn't you?  :-)
Super Cat- Laura Kenney  8" x 20"

The show is filled with such a variety of mediums: painting, drawing, ceramics, textile, encaustic and more! You can even get your pet portrait drawn by local artist Lindsay Hicks for $25.

So hop on down today and see the show. Make sure to bring a food or toy donation for a cat or dog and we'll donate it to  our local animal rescue organizations. 

Enter to WIN prizes provided by Three Dog Bakery and don't forget to TWEET your cat or dog photos on Twitter using the hashtag #catpersondogperson or #halifaxcatdogperson and we'll project your pets photo at night in our windows!

 This show continues until March 4th so drop down anytime and bring your friends. FURRY FRIENDS are optional!
