Alix Sloan of Sloan Fine Arts and AFA Gallery are about to open their newest group exhibition entitled Awakened with an absolutely amazing roster of artists. This exhibition’s focus is on the powerful and positive impact pets have on our lives and in our homes. Prints by Nicoletta Ceccoli, Tom Everhart, Shepard Fairey, Camille Rose Garcia, Daniel Merriam and Marion Peck will be available in a live auction, led by celebrity pet advocate Pia Salk, during the opening reception. To boot, this exhibition will be celebrating the release of Alix Sloan’s new book, Pet Sitter: A Jenna Stack Mystery, which she wrote with writer and journalist Amy Eyrie.

A portion of all sales from the show, including book sales, will be donated to AdoptApet.com, North America’s largest non-profit pet adoption website, to help support the organization’s mission of finding homes for wayward creatures.
