Orange Art Center presents Animals in Art

The Orange Art Center (OAC) is not only a place for art classes. The OAC hosts three exhibitions a year: a student show, a
faculty show and an invitational show. The 5th installment of Animals in Art (AIA) is our first exhibition of 2013. Collaborating this year with the Cleveland  Animal Protective League (APL), we once again are inviting artists to submit  examples of their animal-themed art for inclusion into the show.

What makes this event truly unique is that it supports the art center, the APL and the artists involved. Often times artists
are asked to make donations. This event allows artists to sell their work and keep 60 percent, as they would in a  traditional gallery setting. The remaining percent is split between the OAC and the APL.

This 3-day exhibition is held April 4-6 at the Orange Art Center. The opening reception is on Thursday, April 4, from 6 to  9 pm. Tickets cost $30 in advance or $35 at the door, and include wine and hors d’oeuvres. It’s a chance to meet the  artists, staff and volunteers from both organizations. The show features both an exhibition and a boutique for cash and  carry items along with a wine pull with tickets at $20. Last year’s pull included a bottle valued at $200.
