If you are interested in exhibiting the Remembering War Dogs exhibition in your local gallery or library, 12 portraits are available to exhibit. Please contact me to discuss if it will be possible. We will need to discuss the logistics of getting the portraits to you safely and what costs would be involved to transport them to you and back to me.
Anne exhibited her ‘Remembering War Dogs’ exhibition at the Millicent Gallery, Millicent, South Australia from November 2017 to 2nd Feburary 2018. It was exhibited concurrently with a photographic exhibition by Gary Ramage, Triple Walkley Award winning photojournalist.
Portland Library, Portland Victoria, exhibited ‘Remembering War Dogs’ exhibition between April -July 2017.
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.
