Come celebrate with Gulf Coast Humane Society and enjoy an evening of love of pets during the “Animals and the Arts” event Thursday, Sept. 20, from 6-8 p.m. at the Alliance for the Arts.
The event will highlight pets presented in a variety of different art mediums – including photography, canvas, music and film.
The two hour of festivities will include the “Furry Friends Displayed in Art” Juried Exhibit, reception music by the Gulf Coast Symphony and a featured educational documentary showing entitled “Rescue 4 Paws”.
The event will be attended by GCHS’ adoptable furry ambassadors, to make sure everyone can scratch that puppy-love itch!
Tickets are available in advance for $20, with hors d’oeuvres included. There will be a cash bar available as well.
Come experience “Animals and the Arts” and find out how the love of a pet can be put on display in a variety of art forms!
Music brought to you by Gulf Coast Symphony.
Call for artists: Furry Friends Displayed in Art
To help celebrate an evening of animals and the arts, what better way than intersecting the two? Furry Friends Displayed in Art is a Juried Exhibit featuring the love of pets. These works can come in any range of medium. The pieces should reflect a love for a pet.
How are women and artists seen and judged by their age, looks, and race? What does it mean when someone says, “You will never be an artist”? Who defines what “An Artist” is and all that goes with such an identity, and how are these ideas tied to our shared conceptions of beauty, value, and difference?
