For those of you in the Baltimore area: On November 9, the Spur Gallery is hosting a fundraiser for BARCS (for those of you who don't know, Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, and shame on you). Local artists will have cat- and dog-themed work presented at the gallery, and 50% of all proceeds will benefit the animal shelter. The Spur Gallery is located at 3504 Ash Street, Baltimore, MD 21211.
The professional art will be the main thing, but kids' art will also be sold in the form of greeting cards (you couldn't expect me to take my lack of helpfulness lying down). BARCS volunteers will also be bringing adoptable cats and dogs, so be sure to tell anyone who's interested in adopting about the event.
