Dodge Recipient of People's Choice Award (2007)

Dodge's original pastel starscape, "The Northern Cross" is the honoured recipient of the 2007 People's Choice Award for the Lindsay Public Gallery's Annual Juried Art Show. Dodge's painting depicts the constellation Cygnus (the Swan) which more closely resembling the Christian Cross than a swan, is also known as The Northern Cross. This celestial bird flies down the Milky Way, its wings outstretched and its neck pointing south. In Dodge's piece,  The Northern Cross is shown in the northeast as it appears in June and July between 10:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. Other constellations present include from top to bottom, Lyra, Vulpecula, Sagitta, Delphinus, Lacerta, Equuleus and a portion of Pegasus.
