Sally Muir has had dogs all her life and, for nearly as long, has drawn and painted them. Some years ago she began a Facebook project, posting her dog art daily. As people became interested she became more adventurous in her materials, combining wire drawings, lithography, paper cuts, pen and ink and potato prints.
The project finished several years ago, but Muir continues to find people and their dogs endlessly fascinating. She has held successful one-woman shows with Anthropologie in London and Bath, and in 2017 a book of her dog portraits was published, A Dog a Day. This new selling exhibition is guaranteed to bring smiles and nods of recognition to visitors’ faces, even if they are not dog owners!
See the exhibition at Victoria Art Gallery, Bath, until 9 February 2020.
