For Immediate Release Call for Entries
Art is in the air! It’s that time of year when the JASPCA asks local artists to donate artwork to help carry out our mission to save animal’s lives. It is also the time of year when we give you the unique opportunity to have your art displayed in the most prestigious art showplace: The City Gallery at Waterfront Park in Charleston, SC.
The John Ancrum Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (JASPCA) is planning the 3rd annual “Furry Affair” an art event. The event has raised over $40,000. each year for the abused, neglected and abandoned animals in our care. Each year, JASPCA takes in more than 10,000 animals as well as operating two adoption centers, we have a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, have taken a leadership role in prosecuting dog-fighting rings in SC, and offer a range of educational programs. This past Feb. we broke ground on our new 31,000 sf humane facility to be completed in Jan. 08 at a cost of nearly $10 Million.
Your donation is so important to us and to our show that we are hoping you will consider giving a gift of your artistic talents this year! This premier juried art exhibit and auction will take place on Friday, the 24th of August from 6 PM to 9 PM. All mediums will be accepted. Artist's original works of art will be exhibited at the prestigious City Gallery for several days prior to the event and then auctioned at the gala.
"Furry Affair" is a juried show and we are looking for pieces which reflect our theme, “Animals and our world of beauty.” Artist's who donate to the event will receive an invitation for themselves and a guest to the event. The deadline for works of art entries is Monday July 30th. Any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
