A Place To Bark's Artists Unleashed Auction

The image above was one of the first illustrations I created as a product designer for the company where I currently work. I thought it was a perfect intro for this particular post.

A friend and fellow artist, Bernie Berlin, is organizing an auction to help benefit A Place to Bark Animal Rescue. This is an Artful Fusion of Hearts & Hands working together to assist animals in need. The numbers of animals she receives every year continues to grow. A shelter and funding is necessary to help foster them and keep the rescue alive. The euthanasia rate in the area where she lives, is 95 to 98 percent. But if we come together and share our gifts of art, we will help save lives. Everyone, even kids, can contribute!!!

Listed below are the specifics for donating:

Please send your artwork to:

Bernie Berlin
c/o "A Place To Bark"
375 N. Jones Road
Portland, Tennessee 37148
(414) 732-3211

Art due date: October 25th

Enclose your name, address, e-mail, and value of each piece.
Bernie will then send you a receipt for your donation that can be used as a tax deduction.

The art auction will be advertised in the winter issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. Please look for it on the newsstand soon!

The dates for the Auction will be: November 5-15, 2006. The auction will be done via E-bay, so no matter where you are you can bid on the artwork.

Please, help spread the word because together we can do great things!!!
