A Dog's Life

Lil Wayne Review to come..I promise..

Friday I attended "A Dog's Life" exhibit at the Memphis College of Art in the main gallery of Rust Hall. Artist Beth Edwards organized the event as a fundraiser for the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County. I sent the press release to RSVP's blog and got an email back from the editor asking if I would do a write up and take pictures at the event for their magazine. Me, a photographer!? Well of course I didn't mind helping get some exposure for my favorite charity! The exhibit runs through April 10th and is a must see. All styles of art including painting, and sketching of dogs are displayed from small dogs with their toys on a couch, to dogs marching off the war with soldiers, and dogs rescued from Hurricane Katrina. What is nice about this exhibit is varied painting styles are used by the 35 artists. A silent auction was held of Beth Edward's "Brown Dog" and $950 was raised for the Humane Society. Those who attended received a poster print of Tina Newberry's "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" in exchange for a donation to the Humane Society. It was a really nice event that I'm glad I attended. Go check it out when you have time.
