Charity Auction: Painting for Puppies

The Secret Gallery will be auctioning off six commissions for pet portraits over the twelve weeks starting on May 1, with the proceeds going to benefit Clatsop Animal Assistance. The auctions will be open to everyone, with a different artist featured every two weeks.

Anyone can bid on the auctions, and the winner will receive a custom portrait of their pet.

We have selected a suitable frame for each artist participating in the auction. If you are the lucky winner of one of the auctions, the artist whose auction you won will work with you to create a portrait of your pet which will be framed and delivered to you upon completion.

Proceeds from each auction will be split 50/50 between the artist and Clatsop Animal Assistance.

We are extremely grateful to Old Town Framing for helping out with the frames, and to the six artists who have agreed to participate.

The participating artists and the schedule for the auctions will be as follows:

May 1 – 15: Spence Snyder
May 16 – 31: Robert Paulmenn
June 1 – 15: Hickory Mertsching

June 16 – 30: Jill McVarish
July 1 – 15: Noel Thomas
July 16 – 30: Cassandra Kim
