Bullish on art, Boz strikes a pose for Rondi: pensive, yet playful
Vashon has a host of galleries and fine spaces to show art, and each first Friday of the month island artists and galleries host Gallery Cruise, an island-wide art opening to launch new shows and new artists. Last Friday, my friend Rondi Lightmark had a showing of her pooch-inspired photography at the Sound Food building. Boz held a prominent position on the front wall (and in the hearts of the insightful viewers).
Island art critics stewed over Boz’s enigmatic smile and natural pose, befuddled that such posture and presence could be both effortless and powerful at the same time. Boz was unavailable for comment, said to be at home guarding the sofas, chairs and ottomans from would-be interlopers and making sure dog hair was present on all surfaces. Camera-shy Gracie shared his mission, but not the spotlight.
With the state liquor board putting the kibosh on free wine at public art showings, attendance was down this week. (Apparently there’s a law about that.) The mood was not surprisingly somber and sober, but all the better to enjoy fine dog art with fine friends (as long a loophole is found by next month).
