PARKERSBURG, West Virginia (WTAP) –
Marietta College and the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley team up to show off great artists.
Several dogs for adoption have gone through colorful, non-toxic paint to create original works of art.
The art will be on display and will be part of a silent auction to benefit the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley. Several dogs available for adoption will be at the event for people to meet and pet.
All money raised from the event and the silent auction will go to the Humane Society.
Jolene Powell is an art professor and gallery director at Marietta College. She said it’s easy to see the dogs’ personalities in the photos.
“They’re a lot of fun. And you get an idea of you know, okay dogs…you know you’re going to have a paw, but the different colors, sometimes there’s a little spot, sometimes there’s a little stain. And to see the colors that they have, maybe they had two colors on the front legs and two colors on the hind legs, and so they’re really fun. They just represent the game. They’re just the manifestation of a dog having fun and playing, so I hope that’s the energy that people get out of it.
The event will take place on Friday evening from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Atrium and Gallery 310 on the third floor of the Hermann Center for Fine Arts at Marietta College.
Those who come will be able to see works of art by Woof Warhol, Vincent Van Ruff, Paw Picasso and Bow-Wow O’Keefe.
