[detail] 'Pepper was always optimistic' by Tricia Trinder

6th annual WOOF Art Prize and Exhibition | 23 September to 16 October 2018

Each year, Pablo the Art Est dog asks kids and adults to paws a while and draw, paint or make a sculpture of him (or your other favourite dog) and enter his annual WOOF Exhibition.
