The Royal West of England Academy in Bristol has an exhibition of paintings of cats and dogs called Reigning Cats and Dogs. Not to be confused with last years Stockbridge Gallery show of the same name! This isn’t a S.O.F.A. show but well worth visiting if you are anywhere near Bristol.
Reigning Cats and Dogs features both historical and contemporary images, sometimes imbued with satirical and sentimental intent. Curator Peter Ford RE RWA has brought together an international collection of paintings, printmaking, photography, sculpture, artists’ books, book illustration, postcards and ephemera united under this theme.
