As Montgomery County prepares for thousands of canines to take over the area for the National Dog Show next week, art is imitating life, writes Rachel Riley at Valley Forge Tourism and Convention Board.
This year, part of the National Dog Show Month leading up to the event at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks November 18-19, is an art exhibit celebrating the human-animal bond.
Exhibit B Gallery on Main Street in Souderton will be featuring work from the region’s outstanding artists depicting man’s best friend. The artwork was on display and for sale from Oct. 27 to Oct. 29.
The gallery, Dog Town Rescue and National Dog Show Charities joined forces for the showcase. Offering the space at no charge, Exhibit B also donated a portion of all canine art sales at the event to Dog Town Rescue, a Montgomery County non-profit and volunteer-run rescue and adoption center funded by donations.
A century-old tradition, the annual pup extravaganza culminates in two all-breed dog shows with the Saturday program being aired nationally on NBC Thanksgiving Day. Visitors will also see agility, search and rescue and therapy dog demonstrations.
Not to mention, guests have more than 1,600 restaurants, 100 miles of trails, and tons of family-fun attractions to explore while they’re here!
And, for those of you wanting to bring along your pet, here is a list of pet-friendly hotels in our area.
