Rory Mackay captures the colorful personality of pets.
With a few brushstrokes and a playful attitude, he paints lively portraits of our dearest furry friends. And he’ll be doing so – upon request – during a two-day meet-and-greet at Raleigh & Co. in Greenwich, Thursday and Friday, Aug. 17 and 18, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The London-born artist, who’s visiting from Palm Beach, will personally photograph the pets and transform the selected images into letterpress stationery, custom stationery or an oil portrait, to cherish for many years to come. Pet parents can also order prints of the photographs taken by Mackay.
Guests will be able to browse Raleigh & Co., a pet goods store, which offers products for cats, dogs and pet lovers alike. The store regularly hosts “The Bark Bar,” a dog-friendly social hour, and lectures by pet-care experts on topics such as dog training, canine fitness and pet safety in the home and garden.
Raleigh & Co. is located at 209 Bruce Park Ave. To arrange for a consultation with Mackay, contact the store at 203-340-9170 or email Betsy Kaminski at email@example.com.
