Feb 3: Online gallery launches Wurstminster Dog Show.
The Wurst Gallery launches their biggest show to date, with over 100 artists from all over the world each representing a different dog breed in their own unique way - from a five-foot plush doll to postcard-sized paintings. A portion of the proceeds of the art sales from this event will benefit Dove Lewis Animal Hospital in Portland, OR. Artists featured in the show hail from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, Denmark, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Philippines, Norway, Sweden and throughout the United States.
A one-night exhibit of the Wurstminster Dog Show will take place on Saturday, February 3rd at the newly opened Ace Hotel in Portland. Following the opening event, the work will be displayed and for sale online at thewurstgallery.com.
There's some really wonderful art here. And each piece is one of a kind, all will be on sale after the show this weekend. Here's a few pics taken from some people who attended the show.
