ArtBeat: Dog Days of Summer: Artists Unleashed @ Berkshire Botanical Garden

July 15th, 2010, 10:50 am by Sara

We like dogs.

And we like topiary.

So it sounds like The Berkshire Botainical Garden in Stockbridge is the place to be on Saturday. Over a dozen topiary dogs on will be display as twelve Northeast artists unleash their imaginations to create living willow-whip sculptures of dogs in a host of artistic styles.

The potted “dogs” will continue to flourish and develop throughout the season. Participating artists include Cynthia Atwood, Tom Borgese, Susan Spencer Crowe, Michael Gellatly, Ryan Humphrey, Stephan Lanphear and Mitch Nash. All of the dog topiaries will be for sale and benefit the Garden.

The exhibit opens Saturday, July 17 with a family oriented Dog Day Afternoon reception all day long including dog experts, agility and obedience demonstrations and a BBQ with hotdogs and tofu pups. $10 per family, registration required.

You’re gonna have to leave your dogs at home, though; no dogs allowed.
