Cat Person. Dog Person.


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 opening on Saturday, February 28th, 1:30-3:30pm. There will be treats for dogs and cats and humans to enjoy too! Dogs welcomed. Cats by appointment. :-)  We'll be collecting food and cash donations for the animals in need in our community and will also have an artist doing  10 minute PET PORTRAITS on hand that afternoon.
