"Rescue Me" Art Exhibit at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter

October 27, 2014 - February 21, 2015
Reception: Friday, November 14 from 7-9pm

Rescue Me

Del Ray Artisans (DRA) and the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA) are teaming up to present an animal-themed art exhibit and fundraiser on the walls of the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria (4101 Eisenhower Ave, Alexandria VA 22304).

Dogs, cats and other domesticated animals that share their love with humans are the subject matter for this second exhibit at the animal shelter. Del Ray Artisans member artists are showing two-dimensional works of art that celebrate the animals that share our homes and enrich our lives. Artworks include painting, drawing, collage, photography and mixed media inspired by the animals whom we rescue and who rescue us in turn.

The exhibit reception for "Rescue Me" is on Friday, November 14th from 7-9pm. The exhibit runs from November 14th through January 25th at the shelter. [Update: The show has been extended through February 21st.] Shelter hours for adoption and viewing are: Monday-Thursday 12-7pm, Friday closed, and Saturday-Sunday 12-5pm.

This exhibit is a part of Del Ray Artisans' Gallery Without Walls program in partnership with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. As a fund-raising effort, a percentage of each sale goes directly to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and Del Ray Artisans—both 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
