Opening this coming weekend, the 55th Art and the Animal exhibition of the Society of Animal Artists. If you happen to be in upstate New York taking advantage of the early fall color, a trip to the Institute will be an enjoyable experience. Over 125 works of art and sculpture will adorn the gallery spaces, including one of yours truly. I'll be there along with about five dozen of the other exhibiting artists for the opening festivities at the Institute on Friday, August 28th. The public is invited to visit beginning on Saturday.
