Art Saves Animals

If you’re a regular Nippertown reader, you know that we’re pretty much devoted to two things – the local arts scene and dogs. So we dove right in three years ago when the fine folks at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society asked us to be the honorary chairs of their annual Art Saves Animals fundraiser, and we’ve been working hand-in-hand with them ever since.

The eighth annual Art Saves Animals reception and auction takes place on Thursday (October 11) from 5:30-8:30pm at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy. And once again, it promises to be a most fun, festive evening.

A monoprint by Harold Lohner will be one of the featured works at Art Saves Animals.

And, of course, there’s the art auction itself, featuring both silent auction and a live auction of a wide array of original artworks and handcrafted items. Among the more than 100 artists who have donated artworks for the auction are Len Tantillo, Harold Lohner, Joseph Schuyler, Charlene Shortsleeve, Robert Gullie, Victor Juhasz, Deborah Zlotsky, Connie Frisbee Houle, Chuck Miller, Ali Herrmann and Jason Blue Lake Hawk.

You’ll even be able to bid on artwork by a number of regular Nippertown staffers, contributors, advertisers and friends, including John Caldwell, Richard Brody, Dennis Herbert, Sara Ayers and Greg Haymes.

Artist Len Tantillo is serving as the honorary chair of this year’s event, and once again WNYT 13 meteorologist Jason Gough as emcee-auctioneer.

Admission to Art Saves Animals is $45, and all proceeds go directly to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.
