LAST WEEKEND for Cat Person. Dog Person. Whatchamacallit Show!

"Woof!" "Meow!" I mean, "Hello!" Apologies, we've been spending so much time with our furry friends lately that we have to readjust to speaking to humans. If you've been to the gallery over the last week, you'll understand what we mean.

Cat Person.Dog Person. Whatchamacallit Show. opened on Feb 27th and runs until March 12th. Come visit us, there are so many wonderful creatures in the gallery - art and otherwise! We're always dog friendly, and are cat friendly by scheduled appointment.

Here are a few of the furry visitors that greeted us at the opening for your enjoyment...

Mya here was the model for this Easter card by Jodie Hansen!
One of our regulars, Sophie, who stops in with little brother Winston.
April was so jazzed to be part of the opening she couldn't contain her smile!

Roosevelt here was the inspiration for his dad Mirco Chen's painting, where he was reimagined as a Dutch oil painter.

 This show really has something for everybody, from these lovely little ceramic creatures and bowls by Bronwyn Arundel:

To these exquisite charcoal drawings by Abigail Lowers of some larger cats and dogs, and one teeny one too:

We were also thrilled to have to have Haley MacLean live painting with us. Haley paints animals who are up for adoption at the Homeward Bound City Pound, matching their background colours to their personalities. Haley also donates her proceeds from sales of her work back to Homeward Bound (did your heart just grow three sizes? Because mine did).

This is the LAST WEEK to see the show, we'll be shuffling things around for our Colouring Day on March 12th, as well as getting ready for our Breakfast Club show opening on March 18th. You can find the Cat Person. Dog Person. Whatchamacallit Show. online here.
