Although Portraits Inc. has a stellar reputation for producing the highest-quality portraits of friends, dignitaries, and family, the genre also extends to our furry friends. Only days remain for an exhibition of outstanding puppy portraiture.
Opening on February 11 and running through March 11, “Love Me, Love My Dog: Intimate Portraits of Our Best Friends” is an exhibition that is sure to warm hearts — if not inspire a visit to your local Humane Society. The show features a number of lovely portraits of various breeds of dogs. What is more, an eclectic range of media is displayed, from exquisitely detailed pencil, pen, and charcoal drawings to expressive and veristic oil paintings.
Particularly noteworthy is the character emitted by each portrait. Like humans, animals — especially dogs — possess individual traits and characteristics that make them uniquely themselves, and the mark of an accomplished portraitist is the ability to capture those unseen qualities. There can be no doubt that the stable of artists at Portraits Inc. are among the nation’s best, and this exhibition is yet another brilliant display.
