Among the delights of the show are animal portraits done by students in an after-school program in Rockland to benefit the Pope Memorial Humane Society and to let people know about these good-natured, handsome dogs and cats who are awaiting adoption. The students worked with teaching artist Mae Towers. This Arts in Action program is sponsored by RSU 13 Adult and Community Education. All proceeds from the silent auction will go to the humane society.
