Members go to the dogs (and rocks and sheep, too)

Several WVWS members participated in and were award-winners at Parkersburg Art Center’s new exhibition, “Bow WOW Meow,” which is on display at PAC until Aug. 24.

The reception, which was held July 28, included dogs from the Humane Society looking for forever-homes, as well as artists celebrating their pets.

Louise Braddock, Judy Mattson Reed, and Christine Rhodes were winners of Awards of Merit at the exhibition. Congratulations ladies!! And as you can see in their paintings (see them below), these ladies represent a range of pets (please see the explanation from Christine in the caption of her painting).

Of this painting, Christine writes, “The show theme was ‘Bow WOW Meow (Paint your pet)’, and all my pets are houseplants and rocks.”
