Isabella Garrucho Fine Art Gallery in Greenwich Unveils “Anthropomorphic” Dog-Human Portait Paintings by Acclaimed Artist Rachelle Oatman
Portion of Proceeds to Support Local Nonprofit, PAWS of Greenwich
Exhibit Opening Party WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13 | 5pm – 8pm
GREENWICH, CT (June 7, 2018): Isabella Garrucho Fine Art Gallery (40 W Putnam Ave.) will debut their newest solo exhibition featuring a collection of anthropomorphic pet portraits by accomplished NYC-based artist, Rachelle Oatman. As part of the month-long, solo exhibition, Isabella Garrucho Gallery will donate a portion of proceeds from all sales to
PAWS of Greenwich – a local nonprofit and collective of animal lovers working to make Greenwich more pet-friendly.
To celebrate the opening and partnership, the gallery will host a “PAWS for Art” opening night party on Wednesday, June 13, 5 – 9pm at the gallery, located at 40W Putnam Ave. Artist Rachelle Oatman will be onsite to speak about her unique anthropomorphic paintings that combine dog portraits on the body of their owners, human body featuring contemporary fashion, haute couture, or historical costume. PAWS of Greenwich volunteers and founder, Jessica DelGuercio will be on site to speak about the importance of pets in our community and the organizations efforts to clean up the dog park, promote responsible pet ownership and more.
Rachelle Oatman brings the urban myth that dog owners tend to look like their dogs – to a whole new level - with carefully crafted, manipulated portraits that combine people’s bodies with animal heads – normally dogs. From commissioned paintings that intricately combine a pet with the body and personality of its owner; to unique anthropomorphic characters featuring a portrait of a dog with a body dressed in vibrant fashions - each are intricately detailed to resemble the animal and reflect the personalities of both subjects.
Two such painting that will be on display at the gallery include: Diamond Dog and Napoleon Corenation.
