Sally Muir’s A Dog A Day, Year Long Pet Project
“Muir’s dog portraiture..demonstrates the artist’s technical range and her keen understanding of essential doggishness. …Muir’s mastery of the expressive capacity of the canine eye in particular makes these paintings live and pant.” — Claudia Massey, Spectator
If you haven’t been following artist Sally Muir’s year long, art-meets-dog-fest – A Dog a Day, then where have you been!? After the success of her Best in Show – Knit Your Own Dog book, Sally em-barked (pardon the pun) on a mission to sketch, draw or paint a dog a day for 365 days.
Since last February, Sally has posted hundreds of dashing and darling doggies on the A Dog a Day Facebook page, for a daily dose of doggie goodness.Chic style emporium (and avid dog-lovers) Anthropologie loved her woof-tastic work so much, they’re featuring it at their Gallery on the Kings Road until the 18th February. Dog devotees can pop down to peruse the pooch pieces, with prices starting from £200.
Sally will be at The Gallery all day the 8th February, doing doodles of doggies for £20 each, with all proceeds being donated to Bath Cats and Dogs Home (please note, slots for a sketch must be booked, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there are any late places left, or call The Gallery directly.
Sally’s A Dog a Day exhibition is on at Anthropologie, The Gallery, 139 King’s Road, London, SW3 4PW until Tuesday 18th February.
