Somerset Studio Gallery: Summer 2009 - The Dogs Rule Project

The Dogs Rule Project 2008 is the brain child of artist, Jill Beninato, who invited 12 other artists to collaborate their efforts to illustrate how and why dogs rule.  Each artist created 14 pages to be bound into 14 books.  One book was sent to each artist while the 14th book was auctioned off on Ebay in November 2008 and raised $350 for A Place to Bark Animal Rescue.
