Call For Artists
Greenhill Humane Society announces “Art for Animals”, a juried live and silent art auction to support lost and homeless pets in our community.  All mediums are  welcome, including but not limited to painting, photography, sculpture, ceramics, glass, jewelry and fiber arts.  Artwork is enjoyed and purchased by a diverse group of collectors, art enthusiasts and animal supporters.  Funds raised at the auction ensure that Greenhill can continue to provide safe shelter, medical care, healthy food, behavior training and adoption services for thousands of pets in need each year.

Preview Exhibit
Prior to the November 11th Art for Animals auction, we will feature selected art in an “AFA Preview Exhibit” at Oregon Wine LAB starting October 1st.  This exposure will provide increased publicity to donating artists and an additional opportunity for community members to enjoy the diverse collection of art generosly donated by talented local artists.  Please note: Art diplayed during the preview exhibit will be available for purchase during the November 11th Art for Animals Auction.

If the donation is not collected by that date, Greenhill Humane Society may use it for future events.
