VOLCOM PRESENTS "DOGS TO KNOW" DRAWINGS BY TRAVIS MILLARD AT THE VOLCOM GARDEN
1209 E. 6th St., Austin, TX
Opening Reception: Sept. 16th
Show runs through Oct. 1st
TRAVIS MILLARD’S “DOGS TO KNOW” IS AN EXHIBITION AND NEW DRAWING ZINE PUBLISHED BY FUDGE FACTORY COMICS.
On Saturday, September 16, “Dogs To Know” by Travis Millard opened at the Volcom Garden in Austin, TX. The event was half art show, half zine-release party and 100-percent doggone awesome (sorry, had to). Travis was on the scene to sign zines, books, and prints, and to share tales of dog portraiture with the attendees. In the backyard, DJ Mike Manewitz complemented the evening’s art with some mellow vintage reggae vibes while guests watched some skating go down on the mini ramp. The cold drinks made the hot Texas night seem downright pleasant as everyone enjoyed a solid opening for the Garden’s newest art show.
Thanks to all who came out to the event and helped make the night such a success. The show runs through Sunday, October 1, so if you’re in the area, come kick it with the dogs. Travis will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the Austin Pets Alive animal shelter.
