OPENING NIGHT RECEPTION:

1650 Gallery is hosting the juried photography exhibition
MY LIFE AS A DOG
Dogs — what gives? Furry interlopers of mind and spirit, loveable self-centered freeloaders; they want all your food, but do they ever share theirs with you? No! Backseat drivers! Smiley connivers!! Dumpster divers!!! Why do we love them so? Our protectors — deep down we fear them, because they can so easily destroy us if they don’t like us. Smarter than us — they can sniff your birthday cake and create a hierarchical list of ingredients in their head. Best of all, they smell good and love you even when you smell bad. Dogs don’t mind. They only ask one thing; be nice. And keep their water bowl clean and full. Oh, and feed them twice a day. Oh, and a nice walk in the morning. And one in the evening. Maybe some ball playing in the park or frisbee at the beach in between? Perhaps some wrestling and play-biting after dinner? Oh, and a ride in the car would be nice! Who’s your date—can I come? Does she like dogs? This month 1650 goes whole hog into the wonderful world of dogs. Say it loud, say it proud. And make it real. Because the dog knows when you are afraid…
