You’ve Got Light In Your Eyes

My friend Meighan O’toole, of My Love For You fame, is curating her first physical art exhibition! Essentially the show is a collection of her favourite work from many of the artists she’s posted about during the past two years. This is something I would love to do at some point and I am so excited for her! Way to go Meighan! The show is called You’ve Got Light in Your Eyes and it opens May 2nd 2009 at San Francisco’s Needles & Pens Gallery. If you are familiar with her blog, you know it will be amazing!

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
