Since its opening on Friday night, Unchained at the Lucille Khornak Gallery in Bridgehampton, NY has been a hot stop on the way to Art Hamptons and the Art MRKT. Dog owners, art collectors, and curious onlookers have been avidly admiring the whimsical sculptures that have made the gallery their temporary home. Visitors have marveled at their ingenuity and complexity, using recycled “junk” parts as a medium for creating beautiful sculptures. Two of the most popular creations are “Lola” – a shaggy white dog with an endearing gaze, and “Choo Choo”, a Yorkie with a cheerful look surrounded by a frame of long “hair” made of rust-toned bike chains. Another two notable mentions are the quizzical-faced “Othello”, a Boxer you have to smile at, if only for his puzzled look, and “Bully”, a French bulldog with bike bells in place of the iconic triangle ears Frenchies are best known for. Children and adults both find the sculptures equally charming and fun.
At the gallery, we are very excited and pleased with the positive feedback the dogs have been getting and are thrilled to have them with us until the 25th. If you’re in Bridgehampton, you must stop in to see these dogs. After all, how often do you see a dog made entirely out of chains?
