The Harlow Gallery presents Dog Days, a light-hearted exhibition featuring 65 works by 32 artists celebrating our loyal canine companions. During this exhibit, dogs will be welcomed into the gallery to enjoy the art which will be displayed at their’ eye level. The exhibition resulted from a call for art asking artists to submit artwork specifically for dogs to enjoy.

Dog Days is on view July 6 – 14, 2018 at the Harlow at 100 Water Street in Hallowell with an opening reception Friday, July 6, 5-7pm, in tandem with the opening reception for the Summer Member’s Show, “Construction/Deconstruction”. No dogs will be allowed at the opening reception. However well-behaved dogs are encouraged to attend the exhibition anytime following the reception during open hours, Wednesday-Saturday 12-6pm and Sunday 12-4pm. Dogs must be leashed or carried at all times. Only one dog per human at a time. Suggested admission is a donation of pet food for The Cohen Center’s AniMealsprogram. Learn more about AniMeals.
