ZOOINITAS "Thanks" the Generous Donors and Sponsors for August 15 Rancho Coastal Support

ZOOINITAS would like to extend a gracious "thank you" to all the participants and donors that are supporting the artists in their efforts to bring awareness to the community for the Safehouse Program provided by the Rancho Coastal Humane Society in a fun filled day of art demonstrations, reception, raffle, and pet adoptions at the August 15th reception.

Extending support, this great group of artists with the assistance from local business; the E101 Mainstreet Association and the First Street Gallery and Frame Shop located on Highway 101 in Encinitas, represent the best of what they believe in.

“We are pleased to be able to provide artists a venue that they can exhibit in as well as promote our community programs. It becomes a winning situation for everyone when the artists go the extra yard to bring awareness to the arts, this will be a wonderful opportunity for the public,” stated Thora Guthrie, Executive Director, E101 Mainstreet Association.

We’re so honored that these local artists have chosen Rancho Coastal Humane Society’s Animal Safehouse Program as the beneficiary of Zooinitas,” says Amy Heflin, Director of the program. “Safehouse is a safety net for the pets of domestic violence victims. When they know their pets will be safe, it allows them to escape and break the chain of violence. Safehouse is also a lifeline for veterans, senior citizens, accident victims, and…most recently…victims of the fires. Thank you Zooinitas!”

Thank you to all the following;

Artists: Adele Richert, Bobbie Harrington, Darlene Katz, Joan Hansen, Krista Timberlake, Stephen Gary Frank, Tish Wynne, Thomas Thomas, wood carver, Lovejoy, Linda Luisi, and Cheryl Ehlers.

Raffle Donors: Armida Flores, Christine Thomas, Dan McStocker, Terry Oshrin, Grace Swanson, Joan Hansen, Monique Cox, In n' Out Burgers, Linda Luisi, Karla Nederhof, Yoga Tropics, Yummy Cupcakes, Christine Thomas, Cheryl Tall, Jolie Pink, and the list is growing! Want to join in? Just email zooinitas@gmail.com.

BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse -Carlsbad for the rootbeer being served out of the most fantastic 10' wooden dragon, "Grog", created by artist Thomas Thomas, it will make a statement on Highway 101 at the reception only. (A must see)

Extended "thanks" to 2nd Street Printing for providing us with all our advertising needs.

Darlene Katz to Demonstrate at Zooinitas Reception, August 15, 1-4pm, Encinitas

ZOOINITAS is proud to have 2 wonderful fine artists demonstrating at the Zooinitas reception on behalf of the Rancho Coastal Humane Society, August 15, 2015.

Darlene Katz is an award winning artist, born and raised in Syracuse, NY, now based in Southern California. Darlene’s award winning work is displayed in Southern California galleries and national juried shows, in addition to private and corporate collections. 

Her inspiration comes from her travels as well as everyday scenes. She creates a series of oil paintings for each subject she paints, which highlight her versatility with color, value, and subject matter. Darlene paints landscapes, figures, portraits and animals. She enjoys capturing special moments of our lives on canvas, whether it’s a wedding, birth, or a dog with a favorite toy. 

Her work is technically proficient without losing the freshness of her painting, no matter what the subject, and her unique style is recognizable in all of her work. 

Stop by and visit Darlene and check out both her websites at www.studiokatz.com or dogsbykatz.com to view Darlene's portfolio and a complete list of current and upcoming exhibits. Commissions are welcome.
