If these cheerful little fellas don’t scream, HAPPY MONDAY, well, I don’t know what does. These ceramic hounds are the work of Mojave Desert based artist Katie Kimmel. Her current show, titled “Dog Park”, just opened this past weekend at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco. Here’s what it’s all about:

“Inspired by her visits to the park with her dogs, ‘Dog Park’ is filled with the energy and joy of meeting new  friends. Dogs of all shapes and sizes serve as starting points for Kimmel’s cheerfully glazed ceramic works from fluffy white poodles to purple spotted dalmatians and neon mutts. Each of the artist’s ceramic vases and sculptures has a gleeful personality and it is not hard for the viewer to imagine them frolicking with each other, creating a sense of community within the installation. Lovingly hand formed and painted, the artist’s hand and witty sensibility is evident in each piece.”

I’d love to frolic around in this installation! Dog Park will be at Hashimoto until January 26th, 2019.
