Paws 'N Claws for Art art exhibit at the Vola Lawson Animal Shelter in Alexandria, is a part of Del Ray Artisans’ Gallery Without Walls program, in partnership with the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

This is this third exhibit at the animal shelter and Del Ray Artisans member artists are showing two-dimensional works of art celebrating the animals that enrich and inspire them. Artworks include a variety of styles and media inspired by these animals.

As a fundraising effort, a percentage of each sale goes directly to the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria and Del Ray Artisans—both 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. An added benefit is patrons may immediately take possession of purchased artwork at the time of purchase.

In addition, a special showing by UpCycle's Fur-Vor Community Art Project will be featured. This community-
based project is funded by the Alexandria City Commission for the Arts. It was designed to encourage and enhance students in the creation of animal-inspired art with recycled materials. On exhibit will be 40-50 8"x8" panels of recycled dog art created by area students—these pieces will not be for sale at this time.
