Dog lovers, art aficionados, and their canine companions are invited to preview highly prized dog art and collectibles at Bonhams Auction House on Feb. 10, during their annual Barkfest at Bonhams charity brunch.
Held during the weekend of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Barkfest will preview an extensive collection of dog collars from the 16th to the mid-20th Century. Also featured are a group lot of five leather Pug collars and a leather leash that belonged to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.
“We look forward to a very successful Barkfest this year,” said American Kennel Club president and CEO Dennis Sprung. “This is a great event for dog-art lovers and dog lovers to enjoy while supporting a wonderful charity.”
All proceeds from Barkfest benefit the AKC Humane Fund, a nonprofit organization which promotes the joy and value of responsible pet ownership through education, outreach, and grant making.
Admission is a $50 donation to the AKC Humane Fund at the door. To reserve a spot, please call AKC at 212-696-8277, or for more information or directions, visit Bonham’s website at www.bonhams.com/dogs, or the AKC website at www.akc.org.
