Gallery Q’s latest exhibition, Animals Wild & Not So Wild, will kick off with a reception from 5-6:30 p.m. Friday at the Community and Susi Q Senior Center.

The exhibition runs until July 27. At the reception, the public is invited to enjoy snacks, fabulous artwork from aspiring and professional artists, and wonderful camaraderie on the terrace with other animal and art lovers. Wine will also be available.

This free show features a partnership with two cat nonprofits. The Blue Bell Foundation for Cats, which provides homes for senior cats whose owners are no longer able to care for them, will sponsor the $100 prize for the winning artist. The Catmosphere Laguna Foundation, which focuses on placing homeless cats with loving owners, will cover $50 for the finalist.

All paintings, photos and mixed media will be eligible for the prizes. Voting forms will be available throughout the show.

“We are thrilled to partner with these wonderful and caring organizations,” said Judy Baker, Artistic Coordinator of Gallery Q, in a press release. “Gallery Q is dedicated to supporting emerging and established artists in the community, and these awards will provide much-appreciated additional recognition to our exhibitors.”
