The Kennel Club Art Gallery - Julie Brenan Exhibition

The painting of Crufts BIS 'Cassie' is included in the exhibition. First published in the November 2021 Kennel Gazette and copyright of The Kennel Club Limited. The following is reproduced with their kind permission.

An exhibition entitled 'Julie Brenan: A Celebration' is on display in The Kennel Club Art Gallery until 1 April 2022. It showcases and celebrates the life and work of renowned dog artist, Julie Brenan (1948 -2020). The display includes an eclectic palette of work ranging from international dog shows to more informal paintings and commissions, demonstrating the breadth of her oeuvre. Highly skilled, Julie's work portrays the unique relationship between humans and canines and truly captures the body and soul of dogs. Julie's work was well-known in the world of dogs, and in 1979 she was commissioned by Pedigree Petfoods to paint the Crufts Best in Show winners, and she did so for the next 18 consecutive years.

Dedicated in memory of Julie, who sadly died last year, this exhibition would not have happened without the support and enthusiasm of her friend Brenda White, and special thanks must also go to Andy Jones, her neighbour and friend. The Kennel Club Art Gallery is open Monday-Friday 10am-4pm by appointment. For more information or to book, please email artgallery@thekennelclub.org.uk or call 020 7518 1064.
