Four years ago this month, on a dark snowy afternoon, our furry friend showed up hungry and cold at our door. Needless to say, it was LOVE at first sight so we welcomed him into the gallery and he quickly became the ‘Cover Cat’ for Simons Fine Art Gallery. And folks travel from miles away just to visit him! And to commemorate that JOYFUL day, to inspire CREATIVITY and for the sheer FUN of it….we are holding a community art event in his honor! And we would like to invite you to participate in creating a piece of art to be exhibited at our gallery. Gift certificates will be given to the top three favorite pieces voted on by the community through the month of February.
The community is invited to vote for one piece they love the best! Judging event will start on Saturday, February 14 and end on Friday, February 27. Winners will be announced on Saturday, February 28. See the design brief that follows if you would like to participate:
