Le retour des portraits

The portraits are back! Visitors to Parc Gallery over the last few weeks will have noticed that we have returned the dog portraits, taken in fall 2010, to Parc Gallery's southern fence. Because a few of the portraits were taken from the park, we don't have quite as many as we did the first time around, so we decided to install them on one fence only. Maybe they will inspire more portrait-additions in the future!

We used the same system as last fall to install the pictures. Please let us know if any seem loose or need replacement ties!

Jack looks like he's shaking paws with Tom.

The portraits seem no worse for wear despite being outside from August 2011-January 2012, when we took them down to show them at a public consultation (OCPM).

Of course, a dog user of Parc Gallery became quite interested in our work!

All done! A real dog outshines the pictures - but it's nice to see them up again!

I noticed the dog portraits on the fence as I Bixi-ed by yesterday! Wonderful to see them back on site. Thanks for the re-install!! (Baloo's pic was one that was 'liberated' by an unknown person, presumably a poodle lover, so how mad can I get??!)
