The Cats MEOWed...The Dogs YELPed with Delight!

That's right folks! We did it again this year...we hosted a very happy and well attended opening reception for the CAT PERSON. DOG PERSON show which just launched this past Saturday at the gallery. Despite the weather these days, we are happy to report it was a full gallery and lots and lots of dogs attended too! Don't worry...the show continues until March 11th, so bring the pup by to say hi anytime!

Just take a look at some of the amazing work in the show below . See the Entire SHOW, artists names and details on works online  by clicking  HERE.

Special thanks to PLANET PAWS for donating some wonderful prizes for a few lucky dogs and cats and THREE DOG BAKERY for their delicious contribution of Pup Cakes (which more than one human almost ate by mistake!)

nom nom nom....

We were also lucky to have a very young artist at gallery, who decided he wanted to help out rescued cats and the people that rescue them, with some artwork by him, for $35 each. There are still FOUR amazing works for sale by Hunter, the young artist. Come take a peek!All the proceeds go to the Halifax Cat Rescue Society who were on hand that afternoon as well.

Hunter - a young artist of only 6 years old. Giving back to his community- inspiring!

We also had on- the -spot original drawings available of people's dogs for $25 by artist Lindsay Hicks.

**BUT we don't want to leave the dogs and cats out that couldn't attend, so if you'd like your pet's portrait drawn, just get in touch with us and we'll make that happen. They make such great gifts to keep and cherish for years to come.The artist will simply need a picture of your pet to work from**
And of course...the art...the glorious art inspired by cats and dogs is amazing and sure to bring a smile to old and young alike. There are paintings, sculpture, jewellery, paper dolls ceramics and more! CHECK OUT THE ENTIRE SHOW ONLINE anytime and in person until March 11th.
