Paws for a Purrpose

PAWS for a PURRpose is a Texas statewide public art event consisting of 60 beautiful works of art on fiberglass molds of the pets we so dearly cherish. Dogs and cats of different sizes, shapes and poses will be included along with two mini cows and a few surprises. Internationally known artist Allison Gregory  and my dear friend has selected 43 of some of the top artists in Texas (that includes me) to participate in this event.

Many of these artists produce museum quality work, and all were selected because of their unique style and overall quality. In June, South Texas College of Law will turn the 9th floor of the law school into an art gallery and host a special reception to unveil the art.

The “gallery” will be open daily from June 15-August 31. During the months of September-November, the art pieces will be moved to upper-end retail stores, hotels, car dealerships, museums, restaurants, and law office establishments in Houston, Dallas-FortWorth, Austin, San Antonio, Wichita Falls, and Amarillo to create awareness of the upcoming celebrity-hosted live auction of the art. The auction will be part of a gala to be held on Thursday, November 7, 2013, at the Houston Downtown Club from 6-9:30 p.m. Proceeds from the sponsorships and the live auction will support the Texas Humane Legislation Network (THLN) and South Texas College of Law’s Animal Law Clinic (STCL).

I picked up my "animals" on Tuesday, a cat and a dog and here they are sitting pretty in my studio ready to be painted!

Above are the first few sketches on ideas for the painting project. So many ideas and I am itching to start but I want to explore the possibilities.  Go to the link to learn more about this project
