A wonderful new venue for us this coming year — CITY PERFORMANCE HALL-  and lots more seats to sell!  This could be the concert event that tops all the charts for money raised for our furry friends. Help us spread the word — and mark your calendars today!

 

We have a new venue!

Artists for Animals today announces  a brand new event venue in the Dallas Design District. LEVEL TWO, at 1250 Slocum. “We instantly fell in love with the space when we saw it,” says Artists for Animals co-founder Teresa Berg. “We knew it was time to move Artists for Animals to the heart of Dallas.”

Berg, a Photographer, and Erin Hannigan, Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Oboe, combined their talents several years ago in support of animal rescue charities in North Texas. “We brainstormed ways that our artistry could help animals in need,” explains Hannigan, an avid dog rescuer. “It’s been amazing to see how many local artists have jumped in to support this cause.”

During the concert, Hannigan and musicians from Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Southern Methodist University play a classical music score to complement dog and cat photography and videography by Berg and other artists. Wine, desserts, and coffee are served during intermission and immediately following the concert. The result is an upbeat, playful concert experience that celebrates the beauty of rescued pets.

Throughout the year, Artists for Animals takes adoptable rescue animals to Booker T. Washington to model for the talented young illustrators. The students proudly donate their artwork to the Artists for Animals silent auction. The doors open at 7:00 pm so that attendees may peruse and bid on the original artwork while they sip on dog- and cat-themed cocktails and enjoy the sounds of the Young Strings musical group. The concert begins promptly at 8:00 pm.

Single tickets are $50 each. Table seats are $100 each. Tickets may be purchased here: https://artistsforanimalstx.com/buy-tickets/. Parking at Level Two is free. 100% of the proceeds of Artists for Animals go directly to Operation Kindness to help shelter pets find homes.

Cameras are welcome at Artists for Animals! There will be a plethora of visuals. Erin Hannigan and Teresa Berg are available for pre-event interviews as well. Contact Katherine Rose Watson (katierosewatson@yahoo.com, 972-489-7694) to coordinate.

THANK YOU! Our tails are wagging…

Our hearts are full after an amazing outpouring of love and generosity for Operation Kindness at Saturday night’s concert. The fourth annual Artists for Animals concert was a true success! Even though the final totals aren’t available yet, we can safely announce that we met our goal and will be purchasing the wonderful adoption trailer that Operation Kindness needs. Artists, musicians, guests and volunteers all pulled together for a hugely successful evening — and the homeless animals of north Texas are the big winners. Thank you so much. teresa berg Operation Kindness
