Going to the Dogs! Animal-themed Art Exhibit & Silent Auction to Benefit Canandaigua Canine Campus
Friends of Canandaigua Canine Campus (CCC) and Hope In Art Studio have partnered to present Going to the Dogs, a juried animal-themed art exhibit and silent auction to benefit the City of Canandaigua’s future dog park. The Call for Artist Submissions, circulating throughout the local arts community, invites Finger Lakes artists to submit up to two animal-themed 2 and 3D artworks or fine craft media by February 16, 2018. Fine artist Pat Tribastone, owner of P. Tribastone Gallery in Canandaigua, will jury the exhibit. Going to the Dogs will feature up to 50 high-quality works at Hope in Art Studio, 144 Mill Street, Canandaigua, from April 1-28.
Monies will be raised through the sales of the artwork: participating artists will donate a portion of their final bid price to the dog park.
Special events planned around the exhibit include a private and public preview, an animal-themed raffle of smaller works and handcrafted treasures, special art classes plus an appearance by Wildlife Rockstars, a Bridges for Brain Injury education outreach program featuring live native and exotic animals. A detailed calendar of events and activities will be posted here on March 1st.
