Final ‘Dog Days’ at Harlow

Jul 12, 2018
“Big Wook the Pigeon Carrier Dog” by Shawna Barnes is a mixed media work of stoneware with acrylic paint and pastel.

Hallowell — “Dog Days,” a light-hearted exhibition featuring 65 works by 32 artists celebrating our loyal canine companions, runs through Saturday, July 14, at the Harlow Gallery, 100 Water St. Dogs are welcomed into the gallery to enjoy the art, which is displayed at their eye level.

The exhibition resulted from a call for art asking artists to submit artwork specifically for dogs to enjoy, and a number of Midcoast artists submitted work: Appleton’s David Allen; Camden’s Gretchen Mahoney; Jackson’s Caitlyn Mello; Knox’s Shawna Barnes; and Lincolnville’s Petrea Noyes.

Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. Dogs must be leashed or carried at all times, and only one dog per human at a time. Suggested admission is a donation of pet food for the Cohen Center’s AniMeals program. For more information, visit harlowgallery.org or call 622-3813.
