Boy and His Dog Fine Art (A)
Any and everybody who loves Andy Warhol coupled with his eccentricity, will love stepping into this gallery. Here lies pop art, which could be termed as very contemporary and explosive, to say the least. Steve Kaufman's (assistant to Mr. Warhol) works are featured here too. Walk right in and enjoy your 15 minutes of glory, you might just find an Andy Warhol out there!
I was very pleased with this New Gallery On Duval Street. The Art was amazing. Bonnie Was cheerful and I Got My New Michael Godard piece just as she promised. I also love Daniel Merriam and Spanish Artist Perez
Have not been back to Key West in 10 yrs. back then it had become mostly t-shirt shops littering Duval.
What a nice surprise to see Art Galleries making a comeback.
A Boy And His Dog ranked #1 in my book, we were impressed with Adam Rote's work along with Vangelis.
James greeted us & gave a very relaxed presentation
with a piece called "End Of The Line Key West", we left with no pressure unlike a place down the street we came from.Returned the next day & purchased, look forward to returning next year.
We just got home from a wonderful visit to Key West. We normally stay in Key Largo but this year wanted to vist the art galleries in Key West. I was amazed at all the great galleries. We took our time and visited all of them. Our favorite was A Boy and His Dog, Fine Art. The owner David Todd and his dog simon were there and the service was very good. The gallery itself was absolutely beautiful and a wide range of styles, by far the most sophisticated gallery. The art was delivered a few days ago in perfect condition, overall the service was fantastic. We also visited the Key West Gallery and had a very different experience. The sales girl was insisting that the painting we were looking at would be worth five times as much as we paid for it within a few years. We went back to our rooms and researched a couple of the artists she showed us and couldn't find any information out there at all. She told us that Annenkov was the offical artist for Silver Oak Wines and we love that wine. I don't think she was being very honest about that with us and I would never go back to that gallery. I am glad we did our own research because it would have been terrible to pay $10,000 for an artist that lives by knocking off a great american artist. We also researched Thomas Arvid and found that when you google his name you get hundreds of thousands of viable results and opinions. And we later learned that Thomas Arvid is loved around the world by winemakers. Why would an artist like Annenkov or Morgun be collectible if the only gallery promoting them is a small unknown gallery in Key West? I would recommend a boy and his dog for honest fair service and a great selection of paintings and sculptures.
My wife and I wandered Key West and Duvall Street for a couple of days. In and out of shops, art gallerys, restaurants and a number of taverns. We were first time visitors but we will definitely return.
We found some spectacular art work but pricing in all of the gallerys was in the $2500 - $15000 range. We did find an artist and painting in "a boy and his dog" and found the experience interesting and typical of most shops: friendly, talkative, open, unique people trying to accomplish two things: make a sale and make you happy with that sale. They did both.
Only time will tell the wisdom of our purchase both for it's future value and long term enjoyment. We did want to come home with a special item that would forever remind us of our "four day adventure". My hope is that our painting preserves the positive memory of our great time in Key West.
I dropped in on a boy and his dog fine art when my girlfriend and I were in Key West for fantasyfest. David and Simon (I am not sure if the place is in the dog's ownership, but he sure seeemed like it) greeted me and left me alone to browse. I settled in on a giclee I liked (I can't afford originals, although he had some) and David came back by to discuss the artist - Shaffitt, with me and then he asked what I thought of it. I told him I thought it was perfect for my living room, but that I would need to see what the girlfriend thought. He said "Cool" we are here 'til 7PM - closing early for the fest, or all week long. He asked me how long I was there, and what I was doing while I was in town. Then he let me leave.... no pressure, begging, or negative stuff about any other artists in town. I got drunk and forgot about it. Later in the week while pub crawling down Duval with my girlfriend, I passed the store again, and remembered to take her in to see the sailboat I liked. David was there again and let her know a bit about the artist, then offered us a water or glass of wine, which was nice of him. He left us alone to discuss it then came back in for his version of a high pressure sale. "So, you like the art?" - Yes, we said. "The size is good for your space?" Yes again. "Well, lets see what we can do to get this art on your wall" Then he asked about frames, which I did not want. I liked the simple wrapped and stretched look he was displaying in the gallery. He offered to discount the piece a small amount $100 if he could ship it rolled and have me find a framer to stretch it locally. I was sure I could do that and I mentioned that he would also be saving on shipping, because of the tube vs. a big box and he offered me another $50 bucks off. We shook hands, I signed a charge slip and continued drinking. The piece showed up a couple weeks later, we had it stretched and are loving it now. I enjoyed the way I was treated there (especially in contrast to some of the high pressure galleries on the row) and would recommend him to anyone who likes the art they show. BTW - somehow once I made a purchase, Simon decided I was cool, he had been a bit standoffish until then.
