Celebrate the animals we love with Gallery X’s next exhibition, Four Legged Friends! For this exhibition we are seeking artwork depicting or inspired by our animal friends. While the show may be called Four Legged Friends you are free to include any animal, regardless of leg count, from no legged snakes to 8 legged spiders. Maybe your animal friend is your pet on the couch, or the birds in your yard, maybe they live on the farm you pass each day, whatever the case may be we hope this theme inspires you to create beautiful and exciting work.

We encourage exhibiting artists to consider making a donation or pledging a portion of the sale of their work during Four Legged Friends to their favorite animal shelter or rescue!

This exhibition is open to submissions from all artists working in any medium. Work may be submitted during Gallery hours or by appointment beginning August 17. The deadline for submissions is Monday, August 29. When submissions are brought to Gallery X the artist will fill out a submission slip with basic contact and labeling information.
