Katrina Brennan and Meagan Pelham were featured artists at the 2022 Cementa festival in Kandos, NSW.  Their Kennel Crafters' installation transformed the Kandos Crafters store into a neon-hued art display inspired by the town’s resident canines.

Cementa is a contemporary art and culture program consisting of artwork, talks and events from over 40 artists over a four-day- and-night period. The initiative is artist-led and presents experimental and socially-engaged works in a regional environment.

Prior to the 2022 event,  Brennan and Pelham travelled to Kandos for multiple artist residencies, accompanied by Studio A CEO Gabrielle Mordy and Principal Artist Emma Johnston. The Kennel Crafters installation was a continuation of the artwork created during their 2021 Kandos stays, during which they encountered many lovable dogs that influenced their creativity.

The transformed shop display featured hot pink fluorescent signs and Meagan Pelham’s poetry, enlarged and printed on colour-reflective surfaces.  The store's mascot was “Chewy”, a dog sculpture surrounded in neon light, which peered out the front window at locals and event-goers. Brennan and Pelham’s Kandos Crafters takeover attracted many joyful visitors, including fellow creatives and countless puppy pals.
