The excitement is now building as we are only 5 days away from one of the biggest Dog Art events of the year.
For the first time ever UK artists Nigel Hemming and Steven Townsend will be appearing together in the same venue for a 2 man exhibition and appearance.
‘Picture Perfect Gallery’ of London are organising the event in Birmingham UK and is being held at: Claire Galleries, 7 The Orb, Tenby Street, The Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, B1 3EL
On Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December 2007
From 10.00 am to 5.00 pm, both days
Nigel Hemming’s very latest release: Just Dogs – Brown Roan Italian Spinone 2
I will personally be at the event and will publish a report soon after. Although I have been lucky enough to be in the company of Nigel Hemming several times, I have never met Steven Townsend and am very much looking forward to it.
Steven Townsend’s very latest release: Striding Stones – Porth Nanven, Cornwall
Iâ€™m sure this event will prove hugely successful, Nigel Hemming and Steven Townsend are arguably the most famous published canine artists in the UK and possibly the world.
Out of interest, Nigel has become best known for his gun dog Limited Edition prints and Steven for both his border collie and wildlife Limited Edition prints. As you can see by the image in this blog post, Steven is also an accomplished landscape and seascape artist.
The Exhibition is free to attend.

Has the Art world now officially gone as a Mad as a Milk Maid?
UK Artist Caroline Shotton has taken the bold step in repainting in her own â€˜Milky Wayâ€™ some the â€˜Great Mastersâ€™ in history and putting them in Cow form. These Limited Edition prints are ‘Moovelous’!
Caroline Shotton painting: â€˜Moona Lisaâ€™ (2007)
â€˜Mona Lisaâ€™ by Leonardo Da Vinci
(painted circa 1503â€“1506)
Caroline Shotton painting: â€˜The Cow with a Pearl Earringâ€™ (2007)
â€˜Girl with a Pearl Earringâ€™ by Johannes Vermeer
(painted circa 1665-1666)
Caroline Shotton painting: The â€˜Laughing Cowvalierâ€™ (2007)
â€˜Laughing Cavalierâ€™ by Frans Hals
Caroline Shotton painting: â€˜The Mooâ€™ (2007)
â€˜The Screamâ€™ by Edvard Munch
(series of paintings 1893)
Caroline Shotton painting: â€˜The Persistence of Moomoryâ€™ (2007)
â€˜The Persistence of Memoryâ€™ by Salvador Dali
Caroline Shotton painting: â€˜The Smoochâ€™ (2007)
â€˜The Kissâ€™ by Gustav Klimt
I personally love these and find them a very confident statement on Caroline Shotton’s part. Some really great painting, not to mention creativity, went into these pieces. You really have to these pieces in the flesh to appreciate them fully. Everyone who has seen them has commented how the pictures have grown on them and how their favourite of the 6 keeps changing.
The frames on the 4 framed pieces are about 4” wide but are light in colour and give the pieces both a modern and contemporary feel at the same time. The other 2 are Box Canvases, the style Caroline has made all her own in recent years.
Some incredible breaking News, for the first time ever two of the UK’s greatest canine artists will be doing a joint exhibition and appearance in Birmingham UK, Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December 2007. This is also the first time the two artists have met each other.
