Artists from across the Cape and beyond are joining the Addison Art Gallery in support of Wild Care. Spearheaded by artists SaraJane Doberstein and Amy Sanders and Helen Addison, Swooping in for Wild Care includes an exhibit of new works, raffle and visiting four-legged and feathery friends.
Educational animals planning to attend include two Eastern Screech Owls, Up Up and Nickerson, and Turtle #45, an Eastern Box Turtle.
The raffle prize, valued at over $750, includes an original oil painting by SaraJane Doberstein, a museum quality, framed print of an Amy Sanders pastel, and a $250 gift certificate to the Addison Art Gallery. Additionally, a portion of all sales made during the reception will be donated to Wild Care and Wild Care merchandise will be available for purchase.
Susanna Graham-Pye will be on hand to sign There is a Season, her book inspired by Karen Von den Deale who gained a reputation for rescuing and caring for wild animals in her backyard. Soon her home was filled year-round with injured wildlife, and her successes saving lives soon gave birth to a full-fledged clinic: Wild Care, founded in 1989. Proceeds from the sale of the book will split between the author and Wild Care.
