Artist sells work for the SPCA

World-renowned impressionist photographer Eva Polak is putting her money where her art is – donating all proceeds of a new exhibition to the SPCA.

Walking the Dog, which opens at Auckland’s Te Karanga Gallery on April 4, is a collection of Polak’s painterly images of dogs, captured in poses varying from inquisitiveness to sheer exuberance.

It’s also a celebration of the life of her beloved photo shoot companion, Chucky, who died last year [2010] after a six-year battle with epilepsy.
Her work has been included in many group exhibitions and last year she held her first solo exhibition, Tides of Light, at Devonport’s Art Space gallery. Polak has run workshops on impressionist photography with NZ Photography Tours and the Photographic Society of New Zealand.

Walking the Dog opens at Te Karanga Gallery in Auckland’s Karangahape Rd at 6pm on April 4 6pm-8pm, running until April 13. Opening hours are Mon 12-6, Tues - Friday 10-6, Sat 10-4. Entry is free.

All proceeds of sales during the exhibition will go to the SPCA and donations to the SPCA will be collected at the exhibition.
