Art Spark Texas presents:
The 2020 “Paws and Claws” Pet Portraits
The “Paws and Claws” Pet Portrait exhibit is an annual fundraiser which supports Art Spark Texas artists and programs.
Previous year’s original Pet Portraits created by our artists have included everything from cats, dogs, birds and horses to an elephant, a llama and a snake. We can’t wait to see your pet portraits this year!
Order your Pet Portrait today. Our team of skilled artists are standing by, ready to start your commissioned pet portraits right away. We will accept your donations and photographs from now through Thursday, October 8th, 2020.
How does the Paws and Claws fundraiser work?
Celebrate your pet, or surprise a friend or family member, or a co-worker, by making your donation to Art Spark Texas. Then one of our talented portrait artists will produce an 8”x 10” original artwork based on a photograph of your beloved pet. Artwork size is approximate and each portrait is unique to the artist’s style and preferred medium.
All portraits will be revealed and displayed together publicly at our October Paws and Claws Art Pop-up. Bring your friends to admire your pet’s debut appearance in the Austin art scene, or if you’ve donated in honor or memory of a friend’s pet, you can surprise them at the exhibit.
The Art Pop-up runs from 1:00-4:00 PM at our 101 Gallery space on Sunday, October 18th, 2020.
The “Paws and Claws” Pop-up is open to the public, but in order to get your pet’s portrait featured in the pop-up you’ll need to do a couple of things:
- Step 1: Make an $85 (per pet) donation to Art Spark Texas
- Step 2: Complete the Registration Form. Send us your pet photo.
- Step 3: Attend our October 18th Pop-up exhibit and pick up your art by 4:00 pm (We also offer shipping to out-of-town pet owners for an additional fee.)
Would you like to include more than one pet in a portrait?
We can do that! The $85 donation is per pet. Payments can be made online, change the quantity to the number of pets you would like to include in your portrait. Please fill out one form per portrait.
Upload your photograph or send it by email.
Once you’ve made your donation, send your pet’s photo through our online registration form or email a photo to Susan Slattery – [email protected] with your pet’s name and a little about them to help our portrait artist get creative.
