Call it a pet project. This Sunday, the Mark Miller Gallery will launch a show featuring paintings of cats and dogs, and four-legged gallery goers will be treated to wine and cheese water bowls and dog treats.

Ever since he was a kid, Mark Miller has had a soft spot for animals. “People can’t afford to take care of their dogs and cats,” he told me. “We’ve had a lot of homeless animals in the Lower East Side and it’s caused me to get warm to the whole idea of doing something for dogs and cats.”
