How do we relate to these animals we keep as companions, help, protection and as status symbols? This show will give you paws for thought… so come and enjoy the dogs’ tails.  Sniff out the multiple works on display, including photography, drawing, installation, jewellery, sculpture and a pooch photo booth! Bring your own dog to opening night and have your photo taken with them for the Gallery wall! Then treat them to a Yappuccino in RumpusCosy afterwards. Haven’t got a four-legged friend to accompany you round the show? Take one of our four-wheeled doggies around with you. Perhaps their sharp eyes will help you find the ‘gifts’ left around the space.

We’ll be showing work by Plymouth-based jeweller Harriet Bedford, Plymouth-based artist Kevin Attwood, Cornish artist Emma Saffy Wilson (who can take photos with you and your dog at the preview in her canine photo booth), Annabel Harris, Gary Wiggins, Liam Ainscough, New York photographer Mitch Boyer and Sarah Britten-Jones. 

The exhibition has been co-curated by: Mr Daniel Dobrisan, Georgia Elliott, Laurence Ryan Wolton Christoforu, Leighton Pearce Stokes Adamson, Millie Staples, Chloe Summer Mai Bailey.  With Effervescent Curators: Eloise Malone, Hannah Warner, Helena Slim, Ray White and Sonny Bird.  Assisted by: Star Key, Beaudelaire Malone-RumpusCosy (Miniature Dachshund), and Humphrey (Golden Labrador).

Dog Show is supported by Arts Council England, Plymouth University, and Plymouth City Council and runs until Monday 31 October, 2016.  Families, children and dogs welcome daily, entrance free of charge.  Radiant Gallery, 12 Derry’s Cross, Plymouth  RumpusCosy will be serving doggy treats including Yappuccinos and Woofaccinos with dog biscuits throughout summer.
