Canis Lupus Familiaris

This October, Allen Street Art is presenting an exhibition celebrating man’s best friend. Dogs are humanity’s first domesticated animal, having become close to people even before the advent of agriculture. Coming from a common ancestor of modern wolves, the first confirmed domesticated pup, known as the Bonn-Oberkassel dog, lived over 14,000 years ago but archaeological remains of suspected domesticated dogs exist as far back as 36,000 years ago.

We are looking for Western New York artists who have depicted humanity’s first animal companion. All mediums and styles accepted.

Every artist is invited to submit up to 5 artworks. Hanging artworks accepted into the exhibition must be wired on the back and sculptural works must fit atop a 12″x12″ pedestal.

Call for Artists: Responding to Edward Mitchell Bannister

Edward Mitchell Bannister (1828-1901) was a prominent Black artist who was born in New Brunswick, Canada, and lived in Providence in the last decades of his life. He was the first artist of color to win a national art award when he received First Prize at the Centennial Exposition of 1876 in Philadelphia, and he went on to help build Providence into a New England cultural center, becoming a driving force in establishing the Providence Art Club in 1880.

The Bannister Community Art Project and Bannister Gallery at Rhode Island College are seeking professional artists to participate in and create new artwork for an exhibition that responds to Edward Bannister’s life and artwork. We welcome broad interpretations of the theme and a variety of artistic media.
