Sit.Stay.Art! is looking for Artists!

Sit.Stay.Art! is looking for artists to participate in their 2012 show and fundraiser! This is a wonderful project that helps pets get adopted and raises money for Pets and People, one of the best little organizations in Oklahoma! Pets and People takes in so many animals in need, often without discriminating on breed or condition of the animal, and also covering vet care if needed. They are based out of Yukon and when I first moved to the city I heard about them when I asked around about shelters and adopting animals- They are truly committed to getting our furry friends in happy homes!  For 2012 I am volunteering on the submissions committee, so if you want to have an opportunity to show your fabulous artwork and help out this great cause, check out the info below! We will have all the venue/date/dropoff details coming soon but you can go to the Sit.Stay.Art! website and fill out the artist form if you want to go ahead and get started!

*Did you participate last year? Then there is no entry fee! If you are new to Sit.Stay.Art! then it is just $15 for up to 3 submissions!


We invite you, the artist, to participate in this project by portraying a homeless pet through visual art and then to donate part or all of the sale of your work to benefit Pets & People Humane Society.


  • All work must be original and must be based on a pet awaiting adoption or a rescued (adopted) pet. 


  • Each artist may submit up to three pieces.
