Bethlehem’s Woodward House, on the Green is calling all canine companions! On Sunday, September 30, from 2-4PM, The Woodward House will host a gallery opening on behalf of Animals For Life. The show in the gallery titled Pets, Portraits & Pastries’ is highlighting the fun photography of dogs by Heather Norris.
Adele Johnson, owner of Woodward House and Heather Norris Photography will be donating all proceeds to Animals for Life generated from this reception. As an example, there is a dog named Molly in need of surgery, living with a foster family and the proceeds from Pets, Portraits & Pastries will go towards Molly’s surgery according to Animals for Life, located in Middlebury, CT.
Heather Norris has carefully mounted over 15 dog portraits. What makes Heather Norris’ portraits pop with pizzazz is her desire to invest time interviewing the dog’s companions. She poses questions such as, If your dog was a person, what car would they drive? What job would they have? What would they wear?’ Such thorough interviews lead to whimsical and amazing portraits such as the black and white feature of ‘Barley’ dressed in a bow tie and top hat positioned with a baby grand piano or Peaches looking white and elderly like she is The Queen of England and Stella, the boxer, who knows her value, what she desires, and is eager to please.
Adele Johnson, owner of the classic 1740’s venue, The Woodward House adores animals. Adele’s love of animals has spanned a lifetime as she has rescued every stray she found and recalls bringing home turtles, kittens, chickens, birds, and snakes. Today, Adele has three dogs: Peaches, Cocoa, and Barley as well as Woodward House’s resident chicken, Duly.
Heather and Adele have each agreed to offer unique promotions to every attendee so that attendees can experience dining at Woodward House and photography sessions with Heather Norris Photography.
The cost of the reception is $20 per person in advance, $25 at the door. Entrance includes a champagne and dessert reception featuring Heather Norris Photography. To confirm attendance for Pets, Portraits and Pastries, call The Woodward House 203-266-6902.
