Kim Irwin, FF Alumn, at Paine Webber Gallery, thru March 29, 2002

Kim Irwin & Max Below Toledo-Paris have a Polaroid 20 X 24 photograph from their "Childhood Stories" series included in the book "A Thousand Hounds, The Presence of the Dog in the History of Photography 1839 to Today", Raymond Merritt & Miles Barth, TASCHEN, 2001. From January 17 through March 29, 2002 their photograph along with many other selected photographs from the book by such photographers as William Wegman, Sally Mann and Keith Carter are being exhibited at the PaineWebber Gallery on 6th Avenue between 51st and 52nd Streets. This exhibition is the beginning of an international tour supported by the Cygnet Foundation to showcase the place of the dog in the history of photography and, at the same time, to promote compassion for animals through artistic expression. The Foundation's efforts to help animals in need are currently directed toward its Thousand Hounds project. With the proceeds received from this exhibition and its related events, the Cygnet Foundation hopes to provide the resources for qualified animal shelters to find homes for a thousand dogs (and cats).
