Artists for Animals Faire
The Apex Arts Council (AAC) is about to host the Artists for Animals Faire, one of the largest art shows ever undertaken by the group. Half of the profits of the Faire will be donated to three local animal rescue groups. The groups to receive the official donations are:
The Artists for Animals Faire is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 21, 2012, at the Cloer Family Vineyards in Apex. The event is expected to showcase as many as 100 artists in as many artistic disciplines as possible, and benefit animal rescue groups around the area.
“We will be very pleased to make these donations at the close of the Faire,” said AAC President Bob Crowley. “It is a way for the arts council, our artists, and our supporters to give something back to the community.”
Artists expected to display their talents at the event will include painters, sculptors, photographers, poets, dancers, bands, independent filmmakers, and many others. The concept is to fill the day with as many artistic disciplines as possible. Along with this, since the focus will benefit animals as well as art, a number of cows, horses, cats, dogs, and other species will be attending and available to meet our human visitors. Art and literature will be available for purchase, puppies and kittens will be available for adoption, and the vineyard will have wine for tasting and purchase.
Admission to the event is free. This day at the Faire should prove to be entertaining, educational, and fun for all. Selected vendors will provide coffee, soft drinks, snacks, and ice cream for purchase.
