It is a group exhibition of works from fourteen Brisbane and Bundaberg-based artists, a curated satellite iteration of an exhibition held at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery in collaboration with FOUND! Studio Dog.
Dogs (and an occasional cat) figure throughout the exhibition and on the day of our visit, dogs and their humans were visiting the gallery for dog portrait sittings.
