"Under a Summer Sun" Exhibit at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter

Under a Summer Sun
Postcard art: "Cosmic Codacat" by DJ Gaskin

May 31 - September 27, 2015
Reception: Friday, June 19 from 7-9pm

Under a Summer Sun art exhibit opens on May 31, 2015 at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria, as a part of Del Ray Artisans’ Gallery Without Walls program, in partnership with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

Please join us for a reception to view the artwork and the "Three Minutes with Three Artists" artist talk on Friday, June 19 from 7-9 pm at the animal shelter at 4101 Eisenhower Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22304.

This is this fourth exhibit at the animal shelter and Del Ray Artisans member artists are showing two-dimensional works of art celebrating warm summer days—past, present and future. Artworks include a variety of styles and media inspired by our and our animals friends' love of summer.

As a fundraising 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. An added benefit is patrons may immediately take possession of purchased artwork at the time of purchase.

Light fare and refreshments will be served during the reception on June 19, and Animal Welfare League staff will be available to conduct tours of shelter facilities and introduce guests to current residents. The Vola Lawson Shelter is open to the public for adoptions and viewings during the following hours: Weekdays from 12-7pm (closed Wednesday) and Weekends 12-5pm. The facility is handicapped-accessible.


Donation Drive: Drop off blankets and towels at the animal shelter year-round!

Reception: Friday, June 19 from 7-9pm at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria (4101 Eisenhower Ave, Alexandria VA 22304). Open to the public, artists, art enthusiasts, and animal lovers.

View the exhibit from May 31 through September 27, 2015 at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria (4101 Eisenhower Ave, Alexandria VA 22304). Shelter hours for adoption and viewing are: Weekdays from 12-7pm (closed Wednesday) and Weekends 12-5pm.
