Santa Barbara Kennel Club Catalog 2010

SBKC Catalog front right and back left 2010 (artwork by Terry d. Chacon)

The catalog was a huge success, it was a full bleed wrap around of the painting "Dinner at the Breeders Showcase".   Loads of nice comments all weekend. 

  We started the weekend by a lovely party given by President Abbe R. Shaw and her  husband Dr. Gary F. Shaw.     Over 100 guests attended the party and all were delighted with the special menu prepared by none other than Chef Bobby Unger from Denver, Colo.   His catering team put on the best display and you were not without a drink or food in your hand at all times.
Appetizers anyone?

The silent auction started that evening for the commissioned original oil painting I did for SBKC.


The next day we were up early and out the door by 7 am.   I had a judging assignment at 11 am to judge Junior Showmanship and prior to this we were busy getting things set up for the SBKC Breeders Showcase posters and the beautiful note cards they had to sell at the merchandising tent.       After judging and a quick lunch I returned to sign posters.

"Breeders Showcase 2010"

SBKC and their sponsor Purina fed over 1000 handlers, exhibitors, patrons, invited guests, judges and SBKC members a beautiful buffet dinner.   I walked around and took lots of photos to use as reference material for next years paintings.

  Each year a different group of dogs will be used, this year was the hound group.  

My painting on display for the Silent Auction at the Breeders Showcase.

The top bidder at $4000 was Robert Fratkin from Washington DC.  Robert felt strongly that his sister the President of Santa Barbara Kennel Club should own this painting and he stayed until the end to make sure he was the high bidder. 

It was another fabulous event put on by Santa Barbara Kennel Club members.  If you have never been to these shows, you need to make a date for next year.   Every year it is better and better.

Until next time, ENJOY THE ART!   Terry d. Chacon
