Many people’s lives have been touched by the love of a dog. Whether status symbol, fashion accessory, or loyal companion, dogs have captured not only our hearts, but also our imaginations. Drawn from the Gardiner Museum’s permanent collection as well as local private collections, Best in Show brings together works highlighting the relationships between dogs and their owners. These historical and modern ceramics demonstrate the constantly evolving role of dogs as symbols and sources of meaning with an array of canine imagery ranging from the cuddly to the ferocious.
