HALLOWELL, MAINE — The Harlow invites Maine artists and dog lovers to submit work for Dog Days, a light-hearted art exhibition celebrating our loyal canine companions. During this exhibit, dogs will be welcomed into the gallery to enjoy the art which will be displayed at dogs’ eye level. Artwork submitted does not necessarily have to be explicitly about dogs, rather we are asking artists to create art for dogs to enjoy. The deadline for email submissions is Friday, June 1, 2018 by 11:59pm.

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. 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 AniMeals program. Learn more about AniMeals here: https://www.spectrumgenerations.org/nutrition-services/animeals

Artists may submit to 4 pieces. All media welcome, including sculpture, photography, fine art and fine crafts. Artworks incorporating edible elements cannot be exhibited, but a box of dog biscuits will be available at the door for very good boys and girls. Please refrain from including obvious triggering subjects such as fire hydrants, etc. Participating artists must agree not to hold the Harlow accountable for any damage caused by overly enthusiastic or otherwise inappropriate canine art appreciators.
