We had two months to prepare for our two-day exhibit of DOGS’ Dachshund Fine Art Photography. In retrospect, I think we’d love to have had a good six months, but it’s always fun to rise to the challenge. From our catalog of hundreds of thousands we selected 20 original images and put them in one-of-a-kind refurbished frames (which is aligned with our motto of recycle, reuse and reclaim). We also had 5 art installments that included: two wood and acrylic ink paintings by our friends at Kapla Art, a DIY Robyn Davis alter, a dachshund duo theme of four watches and a blanket featuring my favorite dachshund trio: Rufus, Emily and Lily. Additionally, we had our book – 102 Dachshunds and our DOGS Summer 2014 tees available for sale. The response was overwhelmingly positive, the turnout was beyond our expectations and several pieces were sold with a few pending sales still lingering. However, we have received many requests on Facebook and here to see the exhibit and to give our online community the chance to purchase so… here you go. We have two categories of art: big (top) and small (bottom) works. We will only be showcasing those pieces still available to purchase, and dimensions will be provided upon request. We’ll also be working to offer more detail on the individual art available for purchase on Facebook (so stay tuned). Here are some highlights from the 2-day celebratory event. Enjoy dachshund friends and thank you for the continued support. The sale will run through Monday, July 7, and all list prices include domestic shipping via UPS. International orders will include an additional shipping fee.

  2. quite simply says:

    I absolutely love your work for two reasons: 1. As a fellow photographer, and 2. as a ‘mother’ to two wire-haired’s called Oscar and Stanley. Until recently I was a flight attendant, often travelling to LA – wish I still was so I could have visited your exhibition (Think it was in LA?). And if you dont mind me asking, what equipment do you use? Cheers, Jen.

    • Awe. Love a wirehairs. I shoot with a DSLR Canon 6D and varied professional lighting setups. Yes. I’m in SoCal. 🙂 Wish you could have made it also; it was a great turnout. But you can still get a piece of Dachshund Art if you want to or simply enjoy the photos from the blog. Thanks for the comment. 🙂
