On Tuesday, March 10 the East Georgia State College Art Club hosted an opening reception for their exhibition at the Jean Anderson Morgan Student Activities Center (JAM Center).
The EGSC Art Club is using their art on display to help raise awareness for the Emanuel County Animal Shelter. The Art Club visited the local animal shelter a few times to get to know the dogs and to get inspiration for their art.
"It's great to see the EGSC Art Club using their talents for a civic minded cause. The students have worked hard to bring awareness to the plight of these pups and to shed light on the needs of our local animal shelter,” said Professor Desmal Purcell.
During the reception, the students spoke about the dogs they had the opportunity to meet at the shelter. The art on display is all inspired by those dogs currently at the shelter. The exhibit includes a range of work from an 8-foot image to a graphite drawing of seven dogs waiting to be adopted.
The EGSC Art Club’s goal is to promote adoption in hopes of finding these animals their forever homes. There is a box in the gallery for canned dog food donations. Students are asking the community to come view the gallery at the JAM Center and to leave donations inside Snoopy’s doghouse. The exhibit will be on display until Friday, March 27.
