Denise Bibro Fine Art is pleased to present "Gone to the Dogs," a canine-themed exhibition showcasing the work of 22 artists and 3 painting pooches, on view October 8 through November 7, 2009.
Curated by Almitra Stanley, Olympia Lambert and Denise Bibro, the exhibition encompasses painting, photography, video, and mixed media sculptural assemblage, featuring works that run the gamut of the conceptual and aesthetic continuum. A celebration of man’s best friend exploring our multi-faceted relationships with the beloved dog, the works are endearing, nostalgic, laugh-out-loud funny, regal, and profoundly beautiful.
A portion of sales proceeds will benefit Animal Haven, a nonprofit organization that finds homes for abandoned cats and dogs throughout the Tri-State area, and provides behavior intervention when needed to improve chances of adoption. Founded in 1967, they operate a limited admission shelter/adoption center in Manhattan and mobile adoption van. They also provide programs that enhance the bond between animals and people.
