Press release

During the month of August, The Picture Framer's Artshack Gallery is hosting the 2nd annual Dog Days of August show and sale to benefit the Meriden Humane Society. The exhibit will feature artwork of pets by various local artists. Gallery owner Ann Hearn says that the idea for this show came from her daughter, Iris, who is an enthusiastic pet lover. Last year's show was a great success and lots of fun so we decided to make it an annual event.

The entry fees for the show as well as proceeds from the raffles will be donated to the Meriden Humane Society in the form of a Stop and Shop gift certificate. Local pet services are encouraged to set up displays and/ or donate to the raffle.

The opening reception will be on Sunday, Aug. 10, from 2 to 4 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. The exhibit will run from August 1st through August 31st. Please call the gallery for exhibit hours.

The Picture Framer is located at 96 Elm Street, Cheshire, right behind the Cheshire Town Hall and adjacent to the Watch Factory Shoppes. For more information call Ann @ 203-272-2500 or e-mail
