In celebration and appreciation of man's best friend, the message of this artwork is surely "Something to Bark About!"
This project was so much fun to work on because it gave me the opportunity to combine my passion for art and design with my love of dogs, and create images that will definitely strike a chord with anyone who has been lucky enough to have a furry best friend...or has ever wanted one.
The artwork is vibrant and colorful and thoughtful, and each piece also features a truism from funny to philosophical inspired by dogs I've loved throughout my life. I've combined photography, digital art, illustration, graphic design and typography mediums to create a truly unique and purely original collection.
This exhibit is a spin-off of my Bark Remarks™ greeting card line and shares the mission of featuring and giving back to dogs in need. Many of the pups photographed for "Something to Bark About" are rescues or are in need of rescue, and I'll donate a portion of each of my artwork sales to local shelter animals in need of loving homes.
I hope you'll join me for the opening reception festivities Friday, July 10th from 5-8pm at the Cecil County Arts Council on Main Street in Elkton, Maryland! K-9 demonstrations, local four-legged heroes, dog clothing and treat vendors, dog poems, music, refreshments and more will be part of this exciting event that is free and open to the public. Bring your licensed and leashed dogs to participate in the family fun. "Something to Bark About" will continue exhibiting through July 31.
