SAN DIEGO (June 20, 2011) – Exclusive Collections Galleries’ (EC Galleries) Gloria Lee has been carefully selected to share her paintings with today’s favorite dog-loving stars. As part of Distinctive Assets’ HollyWOOF Gift Bags 2011, Lee will be introducing her customized POP DOGS to 25 Hollywood icons—and their celebrity pets—this summer.

With her deep affection for “man and woman’s best friend,” Lee creates POP DOGS in celebration of what all dog lovers know, “Dogs are the epitome of everything we should hope to be. POP DOGS are just my way of celebrating with dog lovers all around the world.”
Having grown up in 1960’s San Francisco, Lee has been greatly influenced by the Pop Art movement. She combines her childhood influences with her love for dogs to create her beloved POP DOGS. Her works are fun, sophisticated, and easy to relate to; they have become wonderful additions to the fine art collections of many, from Geena Davis to Jerry Lewis. Set apart from many dog artists today, who create from photographs via computer programs, POP DOGS are rendered by hand with each dog breed given careful consideration to its unique expression, color, and personality.
Gloria Lee’s art is shown in San Diego at Exclusive Collections Fine Art Galleries in Fashion Valley Mall, Downtown Gaslamp District, and Seaport Village. Gloria Lee was the featured artist for National Dog Day in 2006. Her art has been featured in Hollywood Dog and New York Dog Magazine, and she is also actively involved in the San Diego Humane Society.
