'Masterpieces Pieces' exhibit at Appalachian Center for Crafts explores relationship between dogs and masters

Have you ever wondered what an artist's rendition of what the relationship between dogs and their masters might actually look like?

Now you have your chance.

"Master Pieces, A Sculptural Exhibition," by ceramic artist Linda Johnson of Pleasant Shade, Tenn., will be on display at Tennessee Tech University's Appalachian Center for Crafts Aug. 20-Sept. 20 in the North Gallery.

An artist reception is set for Sunday, Aug. 26, from 1-3 p.m. at the Craft Center.

"This exhibition explores the magical bond between dogs and their masters by incorporating a sense of mystery and fascination in the sculptures," said Gail Looper, gallery manager. "This sense of mystery and fascination provokes and inspires the creative analysis of space, rhythm, form and movement while keeping close ties with a familiar image."

The Appalachian Center for Crafts is located at Hurricane Bridge on Highway 56S between I-40 exit 273 and Smithville. The gallery is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. daily.
