'Bark at Art' poster show to benefit The Pet Project

It's not often that an art gallery requires its attendees to be up to date on their vaccinations, but so it goes for Gallery 122. At least for the opening of their current show, anyway. This weekend is the start of their "Bark at Art" poster show, and for the opening reception, pets will be allowed.

"Bart at Art" is not only an art exhibition, but a fundraiser for The Pet Project. Visitors are encouraged to bring unopened bags of pet food and new or gently used supplies. While the pets are busy mingling (on leashes, of course) there will be plenty to keep us humans occupied, too.


The gallery's walls will be covered with limited edition signed prints created by local and national artists. There will be a noticeable theme to the art as well: our kibble-eating pals.

The opening reception at Gallery 122 at Hang It is on Friday, August 19 from 7 to 10 p.m. There is a $5 suggested donation, and 100 percent of the door donations and 80 percent of poster sales will benefit the Pet Project. Owners are responsible for pets, and all pets must be on a leash and current on all vaccinations.

The exhibition will be on display through September 10 during gallery hours.
