James Mellick: K9 War Stories (August 16, 2018 - October 28, 2018)


The K9 War Stories series is an exhibition of wooden dog sculptures created by master Ohio craftsman James Mellick. This series tells the real-life stories of military working dogs and their handlers who have sacrificed life and limb as K9 teams in battle. The soldier volunteers to be a dog handler while the military working dog signed up for nothing but finds reward, meaning, and purpose when doing its job and giving complete trust and dedication to its handler.  From the “leash up” the dog represents the courage, honor, faithfulness, and sacrifice of the soldier.
