Graphic designer Terry Tennesen will show 24 of the world’s most famous paintings, though he has replaced many of the models with cows, based on a dinner party dare by a friend last winter.
Tennesen’s work will hang in the Clam Cannery, 111 Quincy St., and a reception will be in the first-floor gallery during Saturday evening’s Gallery Walk. His paintings will be on a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting Dove House Advocacy Services.
The circuit of galleries and shops is from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
In addition to the art, this month’s gallery walk includes mystery stories from PT Shorts in the Cotton Building, and Blues in the Clubs will have classic Americana songsmiths playing downtown.
