Creatures & Critters Art Show and a separate exhibit, the PAWS Small Works Fundraiser.

Artists can choose to participate in one or both events.


The focus of the main gallery Creatures & Critters Art Show is animals. Up to 4 artist submissions, of any size or medium can be priced for sale or not for sale. Any artwork sold has to stay on display in the gallery until the end of the month. Sales, payment and delivery will be handled by the artist and buyer.


PAWS Small Works Fundraiser offers artists a chance to create, donate and display small 5x7 pieces of art in the foyer for sale for $10.00. All proceeds from small works will be donated to PAWS of Wakefield. Not only will the fundraiser allow friends, family and visitors to buy some affordable, cool art but also help out a worthy animal protection cause in the process. PAWS Small Works artwork, displayed in the foyer will be available for sale on a first come first served basis. Yes that’s right, for only $10.00, visitors to the show can select a small work then pick it off the wall and take it home. Anyone can participate.
