Cats and Dogs Art Benefit

Barbara Peters - Galeria Vallarta

Dog in the Door

We all love our furry friends and consider them as a part of our family. However, there are many dogs and cats that do not have homes or anyone to love and care for them.

Part of the mission of the Civil Association Desembocada Ranchito is to make sure the dogs and cats in that area are taken care of, in addition to their work for public health of the community.

To help with this effort, Galeria Vallarta has arranged a special Art Exhibit of paintings of cats and dogs by the Collective Condensado, a group of students of the School of Plastic Arts of the University of Guadalajara.

They have been working since 2010 in the Puerto Vallarta area on a project entitled Art for the Public Health in coordination with the Committee for Public Health.

There will be a silent auction of some of the paintings and part of the proceeds will go to the benefit of the Civil Association Desembocada Ranchito, headed by Ana Maria Silva Rodriguez, for the benefit of the animals.

Also helping with this event is Rosy Carrandi who has acheived success in obtaining reglamentos for dogs and cats in  public areas.

The inauguration cocktail event will be held on Friday, March 30, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Galeria Vallarta, Guerrero 187, #110 altos, and will continue until April 13th.

This is an opportunity to meet the young gifted artists who have had various honors for their artworks, and also to arrange to have a special portrait painted of your own pet.

The Collectivo Condensado has participated in several art exhibitions in our area including one at the Club de Golf  Flamingos, inaugurated by Nacho Cadena, Vallarta's promoter of culture.

Lynne Benoit, the Canadian consul, opened an exhibit by the young artist's group on the Rio Cuale Island in January, 2012.

The members of this group, in spite of their youth, have extraordinary curriculums as in the case of Betina Enderle, a photographer specializing in documentary photography, surrealism and realism, recently showing at the University of Veracruz.

Also, Mario Gutierrez was a finalist for the national prize in painting "Jose Atanasio Monroy" and Marco Antonio Garcia Milonas is a talented sculptor who has participated along with the masters since the age of 14.

The Association Civil has as their objectives healthy populations along with the development of well being and social progress through cooperation of the community. They have no political or religious ties.
