For the next couple of weeks, some Danger Dogs are discounted at the Santa Monica Museum of Art.
Please stop in and see what bargains are in store! The Museum is reopening this Friday night with a gala opening. Members are welcome for the preview from 6-7 pm and from 7-9, the doors are open to everyone. The show should be a good one.
Khanchan from Pokhara painted this Golden Retriever in 2007. This is a dramatic piece done in the traditional Nepali Danger Dog style. Ask for Discount Dog #1. All Dogs are available for a 40% discount at the store. ($120 from the usual $198.)
This is Onslow the Dashshund. Only the top left by Hari Timsina is on sale this month at the Santa Monica Museum. Couldn't find a single photo. Check back tomorrow if you are interested -- I'll replace this photo. Ask for Discount Dog #3.
This is by Khardar Gurung, from the village of Jomson, high in the Himalayas, and part of the Annapurna circuit. The script is in Tibetan, and I hand-carried this signboard (and it's brothers) from an altitude of 13,000 feet down to 3,000 feet! (It took about ten days.) I did not have any photos of dogs with me, so I just asked Khardar to paint a dog and this was his response. Ask for Discount Dog #13.
Lastly, this puja puppy I met on the streets of Nepal -- all decked out in his garland of flowers and with a red 'tika' on his forehead -- is a lucky dog. This little puppy was celebrating his first 'Day of the Dog' and was much adored by his young Nepali owner. This painting is also by Amar Shrestha. Ask for Discount Dog #17.
Though these Dogs are discounted, they are among my favorites, and are all good examples of the Danger Dog oeuvre. This is the best price ever offered on a Danger Dog. These temporarily discounted prices are to support the Museum's gift shop Gracie during it's 40% off sale.
Please come and support this wonderful gem of a Museum in Santa Monica by buying one of these Danger Dogs, get a good deal in the meantime, and support the Nepali artists to boot. I haven't seen the latest exhibit, but this museum always puts on a great show. For directions and more information on this new exhibit, please go to smmoa.org.
