When: April 5-26 2013
Cats and dogs and art, oh my! For animal lovers in Charlotte who just can't seem to resist puppy-dog eyes, comes an art exhibit honoring furry friends. Artists have used varying mediums — including painting, sculpture, and photography — to portray canines and felines. Organized by Charlotte ARTery (a group of local and regional artists who promote exhibits and foster creativity in the community), the juried art exhibit is titled, It's Raining Cats And Dogs. Some of the artwork displayed in the exhibit will be available for purchase. Proceeds raised from the event will go to support Charlotte-Mecklenburg County's Animal Care and Control. There is no admission fee to the exhibit, but attendants are encouraged to bring along a donation for a future furry friend from the following items: Dry or canned pet food, peanut butter, or dog toys and treats from Kongs, Nylabones, Busy Buddy Dog or Soft Paws. Opening reception on April 5, 6 p.m.-9 p.m.
