Call for artists and dog lovers

The North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue group is seeking artists and craftspeople who want to sell their work at a family fun day on May 3 at The Palmer Building at 2601 E. Seventh St. near the Elizabeth neighborhood.

All proceeds from sales remain with the artist. All proceeds from space rental benefit animal rescue.

The event includes a petting zoo, adoptable puppies, a Guitar Hero competition and a dog agility demonstration. Plus Lexington barbecue.

Several neighborhood artists are planning to participate, including Patty Perkins, who makes beaded jewelry and teaches friends how to do so at parties. Visit her site for pictures from The Girls Night Out at Cate's recently. Those are her princess pins at the top of this post.

Rebecca Jones, who fostered the feral German shepherds from our greenway, is donating several art pieces along with her husband, Alex.

Here's a list of artists and craft folk.

Kayla from this animal rescue group was the "dog whisperer" who helped Rebecca with the shepherds, so this event is the neighborhood's chance to give back to an organization that helped our greenway feel safer for dogs and people of all sizes.

Details on the event are here.
Information for artists is here.
