Art Exhibit “Woof!”

The City of Lafayette Public Art Committee welcomes its latest art exhibit “Woof!” featuring local Lafayette artist, Ellen Reintjes.

Information on the Exhibit

The exhibit is on display in the Homework Center at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center now through December 2015. The Homework Center is located inside the library and is accessible during regular library operating hours.

Artist Ellen Reintjes describes her very personal exhibit:

“For the past 32 years, my husband Don and I have shared our home with seven wonderful dogs. I have found each of their personalities fascinating – what they like to do and how they relate to each other, to their neighbors, and to us. When I reconnected with painting a few years ago, my dogs became natural models as I wanted to capture their look, their joy, and their interactions. For the Homework Center at the Lafayette Library, I have assembled a collection of six dog paintings and eight iPad dog cartoons, along with the ‘back stories’ that go with them.”
