THLN is delighted to announce that Allison Gregory and 12 other notable Texas artists will again donate their time and talent to create 27 one-of-a-kind animal sculptures for the PAWS For A PURRpose 2014 Art Auction. The auction will be one of the largest public art events in Texas this year! Many of these artists produce museum-quality work and all were selected because of their unique style, quality of work, and success with their art from PAWS for a PURRpose 2013.
Viewing these exhibits will be absolutely FREE! Public parking is available across the street at the Mockingbird Station or valet park for a fee at the Palomar Hotel. These art pieces will be on public exhibit from September 5 - October 17, 2014 during normal business hours.
It will be very easy to fall in love with your favorite art piece! We made it simple to participate in our online auction. The auction will run from September 5 - October 17, 2014 ending at midnight.
