"Art for the Animals"
April 2nd through June 24th, 2021


FIRST FRIDAY RECEPTION: MAY 7, 2021, 6PM - 9PM (times subject to change)

What could be better than an art exhibition of animals and for animals?! "Art for the Animals" is an exhibition featuring animals of all colors, sizes, kinds and breeds. From cats and dogs, to horses and elephants, this show will feature any and all animals!

Artists are asked to submit works of all different animals. Perhaps it's a portrait of a pet, a safari scene, bucolic farm animals, birds, bugs or reptiles...regardless of which animals inspire your art, we want to see them in this exhibition!
First Friday is tentatively scheduled for an in-person event at Buttonwood Art Space. This is subject to change based on health concerns with COVID-19.

Artworks may include: paintings, photographs, 3D pieces, fiber works, jewelry and much more! 50% of sold artwork sales will go directly to artists, with the remaining 50% benefiting Great Plains SPCA

The mission of Great Plains SPCA is to drive change in our community through innovative programs that promote adoption, outreach and a better life for pets and the people who love them. As an independent 501(c)(3) no kill shelter, with a 97% life release rate, Great Plains SPCA provides lifesaving services for approximately 6,000 animals annually in the greater Kansas City area. 

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: MARCH 1, 2021 BEFORE 4PM (no exceptions)
