Dog Dayz of Summer Art Show

The reception for the Dog Dayz of Summer art exhibit was really great and a substantial amount of funds were raised for the Temple Theatre and CARA. The exhibit will stay at the Art Studio through most of the month of September, and then some great news.... Lisa and I have been invited to hang the show at the Raleigh Women's Club starting October 1st through the 29th.

Here are some photos from the reception, Lisa is in the black outfit.

Preparations for art show

The Dog Dayz of Summer art show is almost here. This is a two person show with myself and Lisa Mathis at The Art Studio in Sanford NC. There will be a reception tomorrow night (8-7-09). Tickets are being sold for the reception and include a ticket to the Temple Theatre's production of 101 Dalmatians following. Proceeds from the ticket sales benefit the Temple Theatre and CARA, which is Carolina Animal Rescue and Adoption. I think ticket sales have been going well and I am very excited about the show. Lisa and I hung it today and it is looking really good. We have a few more pieces to add tomorrow. I think I have about 30 pieces of dog art included. I ended up frantically matting and framing a few more tonight to fill in some spaces, as the area we have to hang in is pretty large. Here is one of my newest pieces that will be in the show. It is an 11 x 14" oil on canvas titled Summer Pug.
