RESCUEdog- September 6- November 16, 2018
This year’s theme for the National Endowment for the Humanities is “Dogs”. In connection with that theme, the Fall show in the Dunning Gallery will feature our canine friends in a number of different artistic formats.
We’ve all seen the bumper sticker: Who Rescued Who? But have we fully considered the complex relationships between humans and canines? Dogs serve multi-faceted roles in our society and at home. They protect and serve in our military and police forces. They are trained to work with the physically and mentally disabled. There are service, assistance, therapy, and emotional support dogs. Many of us welcome them into our homes where they make up much of the fabric of our family lives. The RESCUEdog exhibit is an opportunity to capture dogs as rescuer and rescued. Providers of emotional and physical rescue. Our canine heroes and protectors. Humankind’s best and longest friend. PPC selected 10 photos from amongst its members at the July meeting and they are now on display in the Dunning Gallery, Keystone Building of Northampton Community College, Monroe Campus. The reception is scheduled for September 13, 2018 from 5:30 to 7 pm.
