DOG DAYS OF SUMMER AND HOT CATS! We’re hot! There’s no getting around it, what with the opening of the DOG DAYS OF SUMMER AND HOT CATS – when we partner with the Richmond SPCA for a night of dog and cat art, silent auction, fund raiser, fashion show and fun with our pets. August 27, 2010 is the opening night and reception from 7 to 10 p.m.
It’s free and open to the public. Proceeds got to the Richmond SPCA. So bring your pet and join us for one of the most fun art events of the year
Dog Days of Summer and Hot Cats Art Exhibit - In the main gallery of the art center, all the work features dogs and cats. This show is juried by Jeff Hall, teacher at Maggie Walker Governor's School. Cash prizes are awarded the prize winners of this exhibit - 1st, 2nd, 3rd place and also an honorable mention. The SPCA additionally picks 2 pieces as their favorites and Art Works awards a prize.
Critter Fashion Show - This is really a lot of fun. For $5 you can enter your pet (and yourself as well) into the fashion show and walk the runway. Pet's are sometimes dressed in ensembles and sometimes the owner matches the pet. But some pets enter the fashion show without adornment other than their fabulous coats of fur! All the money collected for this goes to the SPCA. Some of the categories are "most artistic outfit ", "cutest couple"," best tail wagger".
