For all of you artist from the BAY, Purcasso is coming back!
The Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society (BEBHS) is personally inviting you to take part in this year's Fourth Annual Purrcasso Art and Craft Gala. Purrcasso is an auction event that showcases cat and dog-themed art. You have received this email because we love your artwork and think it would be a great addition to this year's show. In the past we have included illustration work from Bay Area talents like Pascal Campion, Bill Presing, Mike Daley, Steph Laberis, Brittney Lee, and many other gifted artists. (We are based in the Bay, but are happy to accept art from anywhere willing to send it!) We accept many different types of art - illustrations, paintings, ceramics, prints, clothing...whatever you like to create! To get started with a donation, mosey on over to http://purrcasso.org and check out our Online Submission Form. We are hoping to have pieces shipped to us for the show by October 17, 2009.
Not only is Purrcasso a wonderful opportunity to use your artistic talent for the good of needy animals, it is a great way to meet new artists and get a little exposure for your work. If you have a blog, please consider posting a description/link to our site, http://purrcasso.org. Purrcasso 2009 will be held on Nov. 7 and 8, 2009. The location will be announced shortly. Please direct any questions to Purrcasso Co-Chairs, Bill Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Julia Clayton (email@example.com).
To give you an idea of how important Purrcasso is to the BEBHS, past events have raised over $12,000 and enabled us to provide shelter, food, and medical care to more than 10,000 animals through our programs and services. Our goal this year is to net $15,000.
Your donation will be formally acknowledged by the BEBHS. In addition, you will be recognized through our website and bi-annual magazine distributed to over 12,000 Bay Area households. For more details about donations, timeline, and the event itself, please visit our website.
We look forward to featuring your work!
