"RAINING CATS & DOGS"
ANIMAL BENEFIT SHOW
MAY 22 - JUN 18
It’s Raining in San Diego...raining cats and dogs, that is. Let’s see your version of cats or dogs...even small rodents, reptiles, birds, or fish! We know there are some splendid versions of our domestic pet friends out there. Looking forward to seeing your work. Meow. Woof Woof.
This show will be juried by NBC 7 San Diego's meteorologist, Dagmar Midcap. A portion of the gallery's proceeds from the art sales will benefit a local animal rescue chosen by Dagmar, one that was hit hard financially due to the pandemic. Rescue organization TBD.
All 2-dimensional art welcome and any 3-dimensional artwork that fits on a pedestal. Photography, fabric, and journal pages are also welcomed if prepared for hanging. Enter your art submissions online digitally or drop off in-person.
Must be original art and the artist's own work. No reproductions/giclee prints (except for photography, digital art, or printmaking which utilizes limited edition prints due to the nature of the medium).
Must be for sale and priced. Artwork labeled "NFS" will be juried out.
