Art for An­i­mals!

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Pope Me­mo­rial Fron­tier An­i­mal Shel­ter was the ben­e­fi­ciary of a unique fundrais­ing ef­fort by Greater Bar­ton Arts - Art for An­i­mals! An­i­mals for Art! The re­sult was $440 raised for the Shel­ter through the sale of small can­vases, which were then painted with an an­i­mal and re­turned for show, re­cep­tion and silent auc­tion re­sale. Artists ranged in age from el­e­men­tary stu­dents to 76 years old. Prizes were awarded to Is­abella Coe in the stu­dent cat­e­gory and Robert Comp­ton in the adult cat­e­gory.

Greater Bar­ton Arts hopes to make this an an­nual event to aid the An­i­mal Shel­ter and en­cour­age arts ac­tiv­i­ties.
