Light House Cinema announces Doggie Art Exhibition and more dog friendly screenings

Light House Cinema has announced a special exhibition dedicated to their love of Dogs which will run in Light House Cinema from March 30th to April 8th.

Featuring 12 pieces from Audrey Dalton of PAWTRAIT and Gill O’ Shea of DABBLE IN ART, this unique exhibition will officially open at 11am on March 30th with a special artist ‘MEET THE ARTISTS’ session

Audrey specializes in capturing the unique personality of each dog in their natural, often quirky poses set against a backdrop of bright colorful backgrounds. Her unique style results in a beautiful and contemporary piece of photographic art that oozes personality and fun.

A fresh collaborative project that celebrates all things dog and the special bond we share with them, it’s been around 15,000 years after all! I live and breathe mutts, and in my photography, I capture each dog’s unique personality in bright, colourful and playful portraits. In conjunction with the Light House Cinema, our project is a stepping stone towards creating a more dog-friendly Ireland. “The New Breed” will soon welcome other creative entrepreneurs building a successful business around their love of animals, to join forces with us to continue to be at the forefront for change. Audrey Dalton

Gill paints unique, original masterpieces of your furbabies to hang in your home with pride. With a splash of color here, and a paint pot full of love there, Gill’s pieces are one-of-a-kind and just the kind of artwork you can enjoy for a lifetime!

For centuries artists have depicted dogs in their work to symbolise loyalty, companionship, and love. As a pet portrait artist and dog lover, I adore meeting and painting peoples beloved dogs. There is always a story and bundles of personality to inspire the colour and mood I try to capture in the final painting. I’m delighted to be working with Audrey Dalton and the Light House Cinema to celebrate the importance of our pooches with an art exhibition of contemporary portraits. Gill O’ Shea

Due to HUGE demand Light House Cinema have also added a weekend of dog friendly Isle of Dogs screenings. This follows their special screening of the film last week that has gotten headlines around the world. They will also host a dog friendly screening at their Pálás Cinema in Galway.
