Press Paws Art Show at Gallery Nucleus


Article by: Leen Isabel

Paws up, Geek Girls fans! Help support a good cause and buy some art for your barren walls! A group of geeky ladies will be hosting a fantastic art show titled, PRESS PAWS, at the famous Gallery Nucleus on February 9th, 2013.

Proceeds from artwork sales will go to "Whats Up Dog L.A." This 100% volunteer run dog rescue works to place destitute animals from high kill shelters into forever homes.

So, help out your fuzzy friends and reward yourselves with a one-of-a-kind original piece of artwork! And if you're in the Los Angeles area, you're welcome to come to the reception! RSVP on Facebook.

In order be able to host the charity sale, Press Paws is asking for contributions. They hope to raise $3,000 in contributions, which will go into printing costs for posters and flyers, refreshments for attendees at the art show, a photo booth and game demo stations to keep people entertained at the show. You can contribute here.

Each of the 40 participating artists will be creating original artwork of video-game animals. Our Geek Girl, Leen Isabel, will be one featured artist.
