St. J Pet Parade To Feature Local Pet Heroes

A ‘Paint Your Pet’ fundraiser to benefit the June 4 parade held at Catamount Arts. Fantastic turnout and a fun and rewarding way to spend an afternoon! Budding artists, families of artists spanning generations and artists picking up their brushes for the first time in years, came out for the opportunity to paint a portrait of the animals that mean so much to them. Bunnies, cows, dogs and cats … all extraordinary works of art! Artwork will be displayed at the Pet Parade and one lucky artist will win a photo shoot with their pet. Paint your pet was led by art educator Melissa Taylor and local artist Rick Hunt. Rick Hunt will be in residence at the parade creating a spontaneous mural of the parade. The mural will be our gift to the town in honor of the 73rd anniversary of the parade. (Courtesy Photos)
