Creativity Explored, San Francisco's premier nonprofit art center for artists with developmental disabilities, is pleased to present Bitchin', a dog-themed exhibition for humans and dogs. In homage to San Franciscans' appreciation for their pets, the exhibition includes original portraits of 'good dogs' by over two dozen CE artists.
Heartwarming and eclectic, Bitchin' invites viewers to reflect on companionship and the joyful relationship between our species as we live our best "pug life." The show acts as a celebration of the bond between species and ultimately a reflection around the artistic representation of canines, their stories, breeds, and personalities. Through original drawings, paintings, and sculptures Bitchin' provides a platform for dogs to steal the show.
Part of the gallery will be transformed into a dog's eye-level exhibition about some favorite canine things. Because dogs love art, food, humans, (and butts) and we do too. Free treats for canine patrons graciously provided by Jeffrey's Natural Pet Foods. The Opening Reception will take place on Thursday, May 9 from 7 to 9 pm at the CE Gallery on 16th Street.
Throughout the exhibition Creativity Explored will host two Raise the Woof Adoption Days with Family Dog Rescue and Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, local nonprofit shelters uniting dogs with forever homes. In celebration of the exhibition, Creativity Explored is partnering with Bark Magazine to promote and host related programming, including The Artist's Best Friend: Dogs, Companionship & Inspiration, a unique panel discussion about the role of dogs and companionship in the arts with panel moderator Cameron Woo, co-founder and publisher of Bark Magazine.
The Humane Society of Silicon Valley will host a satellite show of Bitchin' at their Animal Community Center in Milpitas from May 13 through June 29, 2019.
