Housemates Art Exhibit Opening Reception

  • November 3, 2023 7 PM - 9 PM
  • 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue

Have you ever had a housemate who made you laugh, drove you crazy, made you shake your head in wonder or filled your heart with love? Do your housemates have fur, feathers, scales, fins or are they actually people? In the Housemates art exhibit, the members of Del Ray Artisans share their housemates through many creative forms: painting, photography, digital art, sculpture, ceramics, or whatever medium brings to life their pets or human housemates. Lucky us, we get to share and enjoy them.

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, November 3, 7-9pm to meet curator Robyn Seaton McGarry and the artists. Mark your calendar now or set a reminder through Eventbrite.

Del Ray Artisans is also hosting Meet and Greet events with two volunteer rescue groups in November:

Both organizations will provide information about their purpose, rescue parameters and adoption process. Who knows? You may even have the opportunity to meet your future housemate.

In addition, you may drop off donations for cats and dogs in the designated box in the entryway of Del Ray Artisans gallery during the Housemates exhibit. For cats, KSC needs washable cat toys, washcloths, paper towels, large trash bags, and littler (Fresh Step Clay and Feline Pine preferred). For dogs, ARMA needs dog toys, leashes, collars, and harnesses. Thank you for your support!
