Show is being held at Argyle Fine Art. Contact info in poster below:


Here’s a spontaneous show you may be interested in contributing to! Did you know that there are many Halifamous Dogs living right here!? We had no idea but we're very excited to be able to roll out the red carpet for 11 of the furry superstars and host a star studded night for everyone to enjoy including YOUR ART! We may be interested in having an artist on site doing dog portraits etc as well…if you are interested, get in touch about this too.

We’d like to SHOWCASE your dog artworks or dog-inspired fine art crafts/products on Saturday, March 7th with the show continuing until mid-March. This show will be juried as we have limited space in the gallery. The show opens on Saturday, March 7th, 6:30-8:30pm at Argyle Fine Art.

Here are a few of the dogs you'll meet at the event! Get inspired artists!
