Cat Person. Dog Person. Whatchamacallit Person: Off the Leash!

This past Saturday afternoon we launched our most recent exhibit- the annual Cat Person. Dog Person. Whatchamacallit Person. This show was very well received and is always a much needed happy show in the middle of our Winter season. Lots of people and dogs dropped by to take in the art...and a cat dropped by later too!

This show is a must-see for any animal lovers.  We hope to have the show ONLINE by end of day tomorrow for those of you living abroad, but until then, enjoy these PET SELFIES taken with a few of the participating artists in the show. We encourage you to share your pet selfies with us, using the hashtag #petselfieshrm on Twitter.

Artist Bernadette Kernaghan poses with her kitty! Make sure to check out Bernadette's painting called THE SMILE at the show, inspired of course, by Mona Lisa

Artist Jennifer Atkinson proudly poses with her cat named TOAST...who is also  featured in her painting for the show!

Lisa Hines loves dogs and it shows in her watercolour paintings on display at the she is with her herd of dogs.

Here is Melissa Verge with her little lion. See her painted lion at the show!  This is the first time Melissa has showcased her work at an art gallery!

Artist Mindy Harris is always creating wonderful things including her Frida Calico painting at the show!

Here is artist Nelson White and his pup named Higgins! Nelson sent his work all the way from Newfoundland.

Not exactly a selfie, but sometimes it's hard to get the dogs to cooperate. Here is artist Tony Clementi with the family.

Marion Mazerall is a papermache artist and loves cats. Here she is with her trusty cat helper!

Mirco Chen and his puppy Roosevelt...yes puppy...lots more growing for this one to do. The pup was the inspiration for Mirco's artwork for the show!
SHOE sculptor Kim Danio will knock your socks and shoes off with her latest works. Here she is posing with cat Omar and pup, Junie

Haley MacLean was LIVE painting at our event on Saturday! Come back this week and see the painting completed! Her she is with her dog named CoCo who is 12 years old. Haley is donating any proceeds from her sales to Homeward Bound City Pound. Amazing!
The show continues until March 12th, and we'll be collecting food or toy donations at the gallery for cats and dogs until then too, so if you are able please do so.  Bring your family and enjoy the art!  Take a break over your lunchtime if you work or live downtown...we'd love to see you and we're always dog friendly!
