For an artist, there is never an outlet too big or too small to showcase his or her work. Expressing his personal life experiences through each piece of art, Michael Adam Alpert has brought his artwork to Manhattan’s new dog care facility, Dog Days of New York.
An animal lover himself, it was a tragic day when this artist had to say goodbye to his longtime friend and pet, Mick. As a father, Alpert was presented with the challenge of not only consoling himself, but also his young daughter, who lost her beloved dog. A few weeks ago this artist honored Mick with his artwork, now displayed at Dog Days of New York.
The dog care facility was founded by local residents and dog owners of the Upper West Side, who wanted more for their dogs than what was available. Their belief is that dogs benefit from exercise and socialization, and are unique animals that should be treated as such by dog care providers. The understanding behind this company is that a well-behaved dog can never be spoiled.
Artist Michael Adam Alpert has adorned the walls with three of his paintings. The first painting was in memory of his dog Mick and illustrated angels flying over him, wrapped up in his daughters’ arms. His daughter's face is the backdrop to the painting. The essence behind the painting truly showcases the love that owners have for pets. The second image was a painting of a Wiemaraner dog, mixed in media art with graffiti, a specialty of Alpert’s. The final painting is a group of dogs being walked by a dog walker. This piece is entitled “City Dogs,” and truly encompassed the passion that New Yorkers have for their furry friends.
Each day is a new experience for an artist as they take audiences through their life journey. Every new experience is an opportunity for an artist to share a piece of themselves and this new artwork at Dog Days of New York by Michael Adam Alpert shares one of the many loves of his life.
