ANIMALS

A new exhibit opens January 12 at the Osborn/Woods Gallery at the Miners Foundry.  ANIMALS features art by Miriam Morris, Ivan Farmer, Jim Lee, Juliette Morris Williams, Al Martinez, Jenny Snyder, Duncan Linthicum, and Abigail Weissman.

Opening night is Friday, January 12 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. and features a special silent auction benefiting the Ruff Pack Rescue, a non-profit rescue and adoption organization in Nevada County.  Come see the exhibit, meet the artists, bid on spectacular art and visit with some of the dogs who are part of this wonderful organization.  All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the non-profit Ruff Pack Refuge located in Nevada County.  The group also rescues older and disabled dogs who are at risk of euthanasia.  Many of these dogs are placed into loving homes or are provided with hospice care until their final day.  Several of the RPR dogs will be available for a meet and greet both weekends.

Besides founding her own organization, Mizener is the co-director of the Animal Film Festival produced by the Center for Animal Protection & Education.  She is also the manager of North San Juan Nevada County Pets in Need.

The exhibit runs through January 24th.  The Osborn/Woods Gallery is open:
Wednesdays & Thursdays | 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Fridays | 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Saturdays | 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Sundays 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Call to Artists: Animals

The Osborn/Woods Gallery will be open during the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, and will have an opening on Friday, January 12 for a show called ‘ANIMALS’.  We may have another show of animals later in the year, but this is a special show, as we are having a silent auction during the opening to raise money for a Chihuahua rescue here in town.  Nicole Mizener is an incredible woman who has opened her home to elderly ‘little dogs’ from all over the world, helping them have a good end of life.  Many have special needs, or are blind and need help getting around, many need diapers, etc.  So this silent auction will help raise funds for her to keep the dogs happy and healthy.

You do not have to donate to the silent auction, but it would be greatly appreciated.  If you are interested in participating in this show, please let me know so I can get you on the mailing list.

It will run for two weekends, so it’s not a long show!  But a wonderful one coinciding with the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, so there will be traffic!!

Please email Juliette at [email protected] for more information

FESTIVAL INFO

 

SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic® Film Festival inspires people and unites communities to heal the earth.

Wild & Scenic is a call to action. At the festival, film-goers are transformed into a congregation of committed activists, dedicated to saving our increasingly threatened planet. We show environmental and adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet and the work communities are doing to protect the environment. Through these films, Wild & Scenic both informs people about the state of the world and inspires them to take action.

Wild & Scenic raises resources and awareness for SYRCL’s initiatives to recover California’s wild salmon and to protect and restore the Yuba River. In addition, SYRCL’s Film Festival On Tour serves as a national platform for local environmental advocacy.
