the Wurstminster Dog ShowJanuary 30, 2007 at 2:36 pm | Posted in art and craft, crafty events, oregon | 2 Comments
I got back from two days at the CHA show late last night, which was amazing, but thoroughly exhausting. I’ll post my pictures, some favorite finds, and a mini-review of the Martha Stewart keynote presentation tomorrow… but in the meantime, mark your calendars! There’s a super cool one-night only art event this Saturday night, February 3, in Portland, the Wurstminster Dog Show.
Over a hundred artists (including Jill Bliss, Susie Ghahremeni, Amy Ruppel, Kara Yanagawa, and Ryan Berkley) are showing work in all mediums — each representing one of over a hundred different dog breeds. After the opening, all of the pieces will be available online at the Wurst Gallery site, as a benefit for Dove Lewis Animal Hospital in Portland.
If you have a chance to check it out, I’d love to hear about it! And I can’t wait to see pictures, since attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite dog.
