St Neots Picture Gallery Presents

Walking the Dog, with local artist Mercedes Owen

Mercedes Owen at St Neots Picture Gallery

Mercedes' 'Walking the Dog' sessions are now finished. Here is what we originally posted:

Are you walking your dog past our window every day? Then this is about you. Dogs are a constant, always there, by your side, or awaiting patiently for your return. They are as much a part of the bustling street scene as you are. They provide a reminder of faith and stability in uncertain times as well as comic relief, grace and beauty.

Every Thursday morning from 10.00 till 12.00 over the forthcoming weeks I shall be observing the canine street scene in and around this area and producing a series of paintings of your dogs.

The photographs I take will be displayed here, much like a rogues gallery. As the paintings are finished they will appear in the window, so, keep your eyes peeled, as your pooch could be the next "doggy in the window"!

I very much hope you would like to be included in this unique visual record of the town. The paintings will, of course be available for you to purchase. Or perhaps you would like to commission a portrait of your pet.
