The fourth annual “Paint your Pooch at the Pig” event will be held on Saturday, May 16th from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.  Bring your dog down to Palisade to have his or her portrait sketched in charcoal or pastel by artists Kay Crane, Charlie Hardy, Judy Rogan and Vera Mulder!  Cost is $45 with a portion of the proceeds going to Roice-Hurst Humane Society, who will also be on hand.

While you are here, take a look at the new art hanging in the gallery. The Blue Pig is dog-friendly, so feel free to come in with your best friend. “This is such a fun event,” says Kay Crane, Director of the Blue Pig. “Seeing all the dogs gathered in one place last year was great and surprisingly peaceful. Some pet owners brought photos of other pets, such as cats, to have their portraits done, as well!”  In case of rain, we will move inside and upstairs at the Blue Pig.
