To our 2021 Furry Friends Fine Arts Festival Artists, Vendors, Volunteers and Attendees:

This year’s Furry Friends Fine Arts Festival was a wonderful success (including eight pet adoptions)! We appreciate all who participated, volunteered and attended.

We hope you had a “DOG-GONE” good time! Together we have created a great event for our community families and our Furry Friends! THANK YOU!

The FURRY FRIENDS FINE ARTS FESTIVAL was held Saturday, September 25, 2021 on the lawn of the Shemer Art Center from 8am – 2pm.  This animal-themed arts festival featured a variety of animal works of art, including paintings, drawings, photography, ceramics, mosaics, metal, jewelry and more!

Featured Artists included: Ann Marie Hoff, Colleen Steinberg, Dadra Hunt, Dave Hanson, Fiona Purdy, Jan Cooper, Jules Gissler, Karen Carnow, Lisa Eve Constanza, Marie Provine, Rumi Poling and Sue McDonald.

A variety of vendors were on hand for this event, plus entertainment (dog tricks and performances by Desert Dog Obedience), paw readings, paw prints, pet adoptions by Maricopa County Animal Care & Control, live music by Alan Stee, and an art raffle.  Definitely “dog-gone” fun for the entire family, including your own furry friend(s)!  Eight people adopted their new best Furry Friend at our event this year!
