Please join us in our newly renovated space on the second floor of the Downtown Arts Center for The Dog Show and Other Animals, opening with the Gallery Hop on Friday, Jan. 16, from 5 to 8 pm. The exhibition will feature paintings, drawings, sculpture, photographs and prints made by many of the artists represented by the gallery. Humans and animals have been inextricably linked since the beginning of time, whether through the domestication of the wolf into man’s best friend, or the horse into workmate and athlete.  Nearly twenty thousand years ago mankind put brush to cave wall and created some of the first images of horses, stags, birds, and bears.  Animals have been deified and worshipped as spiritual symbols, with important roles in our creation stories and mythologies.  All of our artists have at some point, felt the desire to depict the animal, whether wild or domesticated, and this show is a celebration of the animals in our lives.
