Whats On in Cardiff? Art meets dog and dog meets art. This summer The Sho Gallery will be hosting various artworks at their gallery/shop in the city centre.
Cardiff dogs home in Cardiff help rescued and abandoned dogs find new homes. Proceeds will be donated to the dogs home to help with their care, rescue, re-homing and accommodation. The home is helped by a charity set up to help the home – ‘Friends of the dogs’.
The home has the most wonderful staff that work with volunteer walkers to give the dogs a better life.
The SHO was set up in 2010 by artistic duo Emily Michael & Dan Hardstaff, as an independent friendly gallery and shop catering for art/design appreciators and individuality seekers. With an exhibition and events calendar it brings together collections of contemporary design, digital art, illustration and original artworks. A gallery/outlet with affordable art and design where you can find digital and original artwork, hand made jewellery, screen-printed T-shirts, limited run art prints, collectible vinyl toys, lifestyle accessories, gifts and cards.
“As we are now in the ‘Year of the dog’, according to the Chinese calendar, and we do very much love dogs, this is an exhibition about & more importantly for dogs. A man’s best friend themed exhibition of artworks from over 25 different artists! A diverse & fun collection of dog inspired designs ranging from original paintings, screen-prints, collage, illustration and more.
We will also be collecting dog food & blankets throughout the duration of the exhibition if you would like to make a donation that way :)”
If you would like to volunteer for Cardiff dogs home they regularly run volunteer days to prepare you for taking the dogs out for walks. With their phrase ‘Adopt don’t shop’ – it’s the best way to get a new dog for your family.
