100 Brisbane Rescues Exhibition - June 9 to 11

Brisbane based artist, Stephen Gallagher, usually spends his days painting people's pooches from his studio in Salisbury. 

However after a trip to a local shelter last year, Stephen decided to use his paintbrush to represent the many dogs without a home in Brisbane and also inspire Australians to adopt. The result is 100 oil portraits of 100 dogs that have come through Brisbane shelters in 2016 and 2017.

"Having been a dog owner most of my life, I understand the unique bond that humans and dogs share. There is no doubt that humans benefit from the company of dogs and they, in turn, thrive on human contact and friendship. A dog without a home is a tragic creature."

There will be a Pop-Up Exhibition of all hundred portraits at the Reload Espresso Bar in the Historic WW2 Bullet Factory, located in Salisbury. 

The opening night is on Friday 9th June from 6:00pm - 10:00pm and this exhibition will remain open through to Sunday 11th June.

All paintings on display will be avalailable for sale with 60% proceeds donated to the AWLQ rehoming centres, helping give more of these beautiful animals a second chance throughout Brisbane and Queensland.
