Anne recently had her ‘Remembering War Dogs’ exhibition at the Portland Library, in Western Victoria. It was on from the 18th April until the 31st May 2017.
If you are interested in exhibiting the Remembering War Dogs exhibition in your local gallery or library, 12 portraits are available to exhibit. Please contace me to discuss if we it will be possible. We will need to discuss the logistics of getting the portraits there safely and what costs would be involved to transport them there and back to me.
Anne’s original Remembering War Dogs exhibition was at Local Images Gallery Penola, 6th November to 4th December 2016.
‘Remembering War Dogs’ pays tribute to the dogs who have served Australia in Vietnam, East Timor and Afghanistan. It also pays tribute to Airedales who were the preferred dog breed for the British Army in WW1. In essence the exhibition depicts the history of the various historical roles that dogs have had in war. Here is a Commemorative Booklet which features most of the portraits of War Dogs and stories in the exhibition remembering-war-dogs-exhibition-booklet-november-2016. ABC South East journalist Kate Hill did a fantastic interview with Anne about the exhibition. Here is the link to that ABC article http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-11-03/artist-pays-tribute-to-dogs-of-war/7992144.
