Art for Arf




Each year, the Nelson Gallery sponsors a benefit for the Rockbridge SPCA. 

Animal lovers young and old are invited to participate by creating artwork. With your $11 entry fee, you get a 12×12 inch canvas on which to draw, paint, glue photos, etc., of your favorite critters–from cats to crawfish–whatever strikes your fancy. Can’t decide? Do several! Get the whole family involved, or just come and enjoy the show.

How to get your canvas:
Purchase a canvas using PayPal. Look for the yellow “Donate” button at the top of our website. Please specify that your payment is for Art for Arf, along with your name and phone number. After payment drive to the SPCA to pick up your canvas. Registration and Entry forms will be with canvas. 

A 50% or 100% commission (artist’s choice) of each work sold will be donated to the Rockbridge SPCA.

Nelson Gallery is located at 27 West Washington Street, Lexington, VA.  540-463-9827
