The Daily Zoo Heads to Paris

Greetings friends and Happy New Year! I have good news for those of you who live in Paris (or for those of you looking for an excuse to take a vacation to Paris - though do you really need an excuse to vacation in Paris?!). There will be an exhibition of original Daily Zoo sketches and paintings at Galerie Daniel Maghen this month. There is an opening reception on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 7PM (19:00 for you locals) that is open to the public. And that's not all: I'm exhibiting with another animal artist, the very talented Joe Weatherly.

Please note that the opening reception has been moved up a day from the date originally given in the Daily Zoo e-newsletter.

This is the first time that I'm offering Daily Zoo originals for sale, so if that has been something on your wishlist please check it out. The Galerie will be offering the pieces for sale through their website too, so you don't have to trek to Paris to adorn your wall with an aargh-madillo pirate or a pumped-up porker.

What: Animal Art Exhibition featuring the work of Chris Ayers and Joe Weatherly
When: January 18 - February 4, 2012
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 19, 2012 7PM (19:00h)
Where: Galerie Daniel Maghen
47 quai des Grands Augustins
75006 PARIS

Below are some of the pieces included in the show.
Hope to see you there!

Thanks, Kendra! If I have extra room in my suitcase, you're welcome to stow away. You can fold in thirds, right?
