This show is becoming a bit of an annual affair. Our artists enjoy painting and drawing their furry family members so much that some of them have already begun preparing for the exhibit. We'll showcase a selection of works by local artists  We'll be collecting food and cash donations for the animals in need in our community and will also have an artist doing  PET PORTRAITS  of your pets using images provided by you, for just $25!  Show continues until March 11th
