Bark at Art Poster Show benefiting the Pet Project

It seems that for the past 2 years I have been planning one event or another. The most recent event was a poster show for a local non-profit group called The Pet Project. This group helps pet owners who fall on hard times keep their pets. Whether it is getting them pet food or helping out with vet bills, they work hard to keep a family together.

My friend, April, is very passionate about this group and asked me to help plan and organize the event to raise money. The show was last night and it was successful. We had 26 designers design posters that were pet inspired. Each designer donated 15 limited edition prints that were sold at a local gallery, Gallery 122 for $25. 80% of the profits will be donated directly to The Pet Project.

I designed the promotional poster and even took a stab at copy writing . . .

Here is my poster contribution for Bark at Art. My goal is to have at least 1 person purchase my poster.

My first gallery showing.

Cider was even there to support me (it was a pet friendly opening reception).

All in all it was a successful event. I am anxious to hear what we were able to raise for The Pet Project. I am also ready to take a break from planning . . . for awhile.
