The American Kennel Club Holds Charity Brunch With Bonhams Auction House
The winter storm on Sunday, February 12 didn't keep art lovers or their dogs from attending 'Barkfest at Bonhams' charity brunch in New York City. Braving the blizzard, guests had the opportunity to view over 200 lots of fine paintings and works of art featuring dogs before the works go up for auction on February 14. The Barkfest showcased exquisite watercolors, bronzes and oil paintings including the New Forest Foxhounds by John Emms which is expected to realize over $800,000.
All proceeds from the Barkfest are being donated to AKC's public art fund-raising program, DOGNY - America's tribute to Search and Rescue Dogs.
