D Term’s exhibition in the Class of 1970 Café, “You’re my Best Friend” by Jess Baer, is sure to put a smile on your face. “You’re my Best Friend” is a collection of endearing pet portraits, consisting of either oil on masonite or watercolor with ink. Jess paints amusing and playful depictions of our best friends, which capture the animal’s personality and charm. Focusing mostly on dogs of varying breeds, these portraits pay tribute to the owner’s love and devotion that can only be felt through these kinds of bonds.
