My Best Friend

A Juried Show

June 25 – August 7, 2021

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”

Josh Billings

Since prehistoric times, dogs have been at our side as protectors, assistants, and most of all, valuable friends.  Their lives are short, but their impact on the people that knew and loved them is likely immeasurable.  They come in nearly endless shapes, sized and colors, but within their hearts, they are the same:  loyal, curious, smart, and loving. 

Crete Creative Gallery and School seeks a variety of art forms that celebrate and tell the story of the relationship between humans and their dogs.  For this exhibit, we will accept paintings, photographs, sculpture, and mixed media.  Each submission MUST include a short essay (200 words or less) about the subject of the work.
