If you are in Palm Springs for the month of June, please stop by and see the Danger Dogs in person at the Terry Martin Gallery. Run by the fabulous Terry Martin, this gallery is also known at the Terrence Rogers Fine Arts Gallery.
Starting clockwise from top left, Zia the Black Danger Cat is by Shree Shrestha. Beware of Cock by Sanjib Rana, followed by Chester the Basset Hound by Nara of Asha Arts. The horse frolicking in the surf is also by Sanjib Rana.
Above is Sport (a Good Boy) by Ram Krishna of Kathmandu. Also featured for the month of June is the artwork of Maria Dudley and Jason Kowalski. The title of their show is "Palm Springs and Other Exotic Places". The painting above is of the iconic Zuma Beach Food concession by Maria Dudley.
Shree Shrestha of Pokhara painted this 'Dangers Dog' of Jasper the Weimaraner on his magic carpet.
All pieces are approximately 12" by 12" and are synthetic enamel on (sometimes recycled) metal. They can be hung indoors or out.
All art featured on today's blog is available through June, 2010, at the Terry Martin Gallery at 664 N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. His phone is (760) 332-8732. Call for hours or to make an appointment.
I am heading off to Nepal for the 7th Danger Dog trip very soon, so custom orders should be placed soon. Each commission generates 3 portraits of your pet by 3 struggling Nepali signboard artists. You get 3 choices, 3 people get work. Please remember that I take no deposit up front. You pay only after choosing which portrait of your pet you prefer.
