Every August Art Works partners with the art community to create a summer project and exhibit to benefit the orphaned animals cared for by the Richmond SPCA. This partnership has rasied over $2,000 for homeless animals.

This juried all-media show, opening on Friday, August 27, is all about dogs and cats. Half of all art sale proceeds will help support homeless animals. The show runs through September 19, 2010.

The August 27 opening night for this exhibit will feature:
