MOSES LAKE — It’s raining cats, dogs, chickens, horses and a snake at the Moses Lake Museum and Art Center, which opened its pet-themed “Best in Show” art gallery Friday. The show runs until March 8.
Attendees young and old were treated to dozens of photos, paintings and — in one case — a golden shrine, celebrating everything that is cuddly and cute about the animals that spend their lives with humans. The artwork came from animal-loving artists from all over the state, depicting their furry (or scaly) friends in pastel, oil, wood panels and photo prints.
The Grant County Animal Outreach, which operates one of the few animal shelters in the county, was on site for the gallery’s opening reception Friday for a supply drive, taking in both cash donations and items like food that the organization requires to serve animals in need.
The gallery is free to attend, and both original paintings and prints are on sale to support the artists and the museum. A children’s art show, “Fur Babies,” will be on display until Feb. 8.
