Elliott Erwitt: Dog Dogs | June 4 – July 31
Come to the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery to find your inner pooch and discover some great art, too. In his vast range of sentiment, and in his easygoing but precise mastery of the abstract elements of composition, Elliott Erwitt is an acute observer of the canine world.
