How to Create a Better World for Animals with Art

Seaside Art Gallery's Breathtaking ‘Animals in Art’ Show Benefits Pets, February 3rd – 24th, 2018.

By Cindy Reed

Did you know nearly half of all households in the United States have a cat or dog, or both? If your household is one of them, you already know nothing beats the companionship of a loving pet by your side. There are more than 160 million dogs and cats living with their humans right now in their own cozy home!

But sadly, not all animals…or their caretakers… are as fortunate.  Every year, millions of people are heartbroken…as they’re unbelievably forced to give up their beloved companions to shelters… due to unexpected financial hardship.

You Can Create a Better World for Animals with Art.

Big Dreams by Sue WallSeaside Art Gallery’s breathtaking Animals in Art Show helps support pets with the Coastal Humane Society. When you buy an art piece with an animal during the show, you help fund efforts to ensure that all pets are cared for. A portion of the art sales is donated to the Coastal Humane Society.

The show opens February 3rd and runs through February 24th, 2018. You can see the entire Animals in Art Show online on their new website, or stop by and visit the gallery.

Melanie Smith, owner of Seaside Art Gallery is an avid animal lover. She brings her passion for art and animals together in this amazing Animals in Art Show. The exclusive exhibit celebrates animals while helping to create a better world for them.

“We love bringing this extraordinary art show to our community. It celebrates the beauty of animals through art by wonderful artists in the Outer Banks and around the USA,” says Smith. “Everyone participating in the show is helping pets to stay with their owners during financial difficulty, through the efforts of the Coastal Humane Society.”

You can go to a special reception at Seaside Art Gallery on Friday, February 9th, 2018 from 5pm to 7pm. It’s open to the public. Refreshments are served.

Proceeds Benefit the Coastal Humane Society

Hundreds of original works of art are on display portraying animals with fur, feather, or fin, in all art forms - from canvas and animation art to jewelry and sculpture.

A portion of proceeds from the sale of any item featuring an animal in the gallery from February 3rd – 24th, 2018, will be donated to the Coastal Humane Society benefiting animals.

The Coastal Humane Society is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring all animals are cared for and no caretaker is forced to give up a pet because of financial hardship. The organization has been helping over 6,000 animals and caretakers in Dare and Currituck counties since 1997.
