In a summer of severe drought, save water, pray for rain, and visit the Cedars Artist Within Gallery where it’s raining cats and dogs! Cedars has teamed up with Marin Humane for a purr-fect partnership and collaboration for this current exhibition.
Cedars artists had the op-paw-tunity to work from over eighty photos of pets lucky enough to have Marin Humane staff as their guardians. The result: a show worth wagging your tail over!
The opening reception will be held on Friday, September 10, 6 – 8pm, and the exhibit will be viewable at the gallery September 10 – November 26, 2021.
Presented by American Safety & Health Institute certified instructor Peter Pay, this hands-on workshop teaches basic lifesaving techniques and preparedness, including basic pet first aid, CPR training, rescue breathing, restraint and muzzling, choking management, poison response, and much more.
