Attention Shelters, Rescues, and Sanctuaries: Pictures of Animals in Your Care Needed for “Artists for Animals” Special Exhibit
The NEPA Animal Welfare Collaborative and the Scranton Area Community Foundation are thrilled to team up with the AFA Gallery for Artists for Animals, a special exhibit that highlights the value, personality, and spirit of the animals in our local shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries.
We are asking each shelter/rescue/sanctuary in the NEPA Animal Welfare Collaborative to select up to four (4) animals currently within their care and email their images by Monday, May 2nd to Nora Kern at Nora@safdn.org
Artists for Animals will commission a special series of artwork from regional artists based on real animals in local shelters, rescues, and sanctuaries. Pieces from this series will be made available for sale, with all funds donated to the NEPA Animal Welfare Collaborative to support our efforts to improve the welfare of animals in the region.
Exhibit Description: The artists will capture the animals’ aesthetics by utilizing their own unique creative styles, their history, personality, and “spirit” on the canvas. Information on the animal’s past, personality, etc. can be provided at a later date.
In addition to an open call to all AFA Gallery members in good standing for 2D or 3D works, AFA is commissioning several artists (covering supplies and stipend for their time) to create large 2D works (30 x 40 canvases) based on images and descriptions of the animals the shelters and rescues will provide.
