7th Annual Art Saves Animals - Mohawk Hudson Humane Society

Click on the photo of the chicken you may see it in larger scale. I donated this piece of art to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society. On October 6 at 5:30pm at the Arts Center of the Capital Region on River Street in Troy NY this piece along with other art pieces from other artists will be displayed at Art Saves Animals silent auction and cocktail reception.  The admission fee to this event for non-contributing artists is $40 and people who have contributed by giving art work to participate in the auction pay $20.  By attending the event and possibly buying another artists work you are funding to help the more than 6,000 animals who are provided shelter, care and adoption through out the year.

The 12x12 snowflakes and the yellow rose on the left side of the photo are made from recycled manila folders. The snowflakes were spray painted purple or white.
