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 $10 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.

Canvases are available from the Nelson Gallery Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 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
