Mad Dog Monty
Saturday, November 19, 2016 to Sunday, January 15, 2017
Mad Dog Monty is a series of humorous drawings and etchings by Jim Ireland on display in OMAH's Lounge Gallery from November 19, 2016 - January 15, 2017.
Ireland states, "My daughter had a Boston terrier called Tetley and I started sketching him because he was black and white and so easy to draw [...]And the way he strutted around, he reminded me of a childhood friend called Montague Dennis Oliver Wrigglesworth, so I called this dog character I’d created Monty."
In 2015 Ireland joined OMAH as our Artist in Residence and presented the exhibition, The Man in the Little Black Dress. Like the story of Father Demante, the works in Mad Dog Monty tell a story about the adventures of a city dog who moves to the country.
A special reception for Mad Dogs will take place on Nov. 24, from 7-9 p.m. The prints will be for sale as well as a book of the art and Monty’s story.
