For the third year, wild and domestic animal artwork were combined beautifully into one show, the 14th annual event hosted by IAA featuring animal art. Artwork and photography from 68 artists came from all across the country, selected by juror Helen Bailey. Drawings, pastels, watercolors, oils, acrylics and mixed media are represented in this exciting collection.

The show opened Sunday, August 30th and runs until Sept. 24th at the Jaycee Park Center for the Arts. Gallery hours are Sun., Mon., & Wed., from 1 to 4 p.m. and Tues. & Thurs., from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Awards Reception was held on Sunday afternoon, September 13 from 2-4pm.

Credit goes to those who worked hard on this exhibit: Host and leader of the Exhibit Committee was IAA President Linda Shotwell (subbing for Mark Thompson). Linda and Juror Helen Bailey handed out awards. Catalog and entry work was done by webmaster Sharon Giles. Hanging and intake volunteers were Susan Murray, Pat Arnold, Rachael Gregory, Cynthia Stone, Patsy Davila, Jean Knauber and VET.  Food for the reception was a joint effort of the IAA Board. Reception photographer is Patsy Davila.

On Sept. 25 selected artwork from the exhibit will move to the West Irving Library (corner of Rochelle & Esters) for the 4th Annual IAA Animal Art Traveling Exhibit and be on view until December 5. Traveling exhibit chairs are Sharon Giles and Susan Murray.

For Reception & Award photo, check the IAA Photo Album – they will be posted soon. For pictures of the award-winning art, see the Winners Gallery below.
