This painting of a spanial on a chair will be among the pieces of art on display and for sale at the North Hills Art Center’s animal themed show starting on Saturday, March 9, 2019. The show, which benefits local animal rescue groups, runs through April 5.

The North Hills Art Center is going to the dogs — and the cats, gerbils, snakes and other critters people keep as pets.

A juried animal-themed art show to benefit local animal rescue groups kick off on Saturday, March 9 with a grand opening from 7 to 9 p.m.

The art, which will be on display through April 5, can be viewed weekdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Mondays from 7 to 9 p.m.

On two Saturdays during the show’s run, special animal-themed activities will be held.

• An “Animal Art Day” featuring three pet friendly art activities is scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. on March 16.

• A “Pet Portrait” demonstration by artist Kim Freithaler will be held at 1 p.m. on March 23.

The Art Center is located at 3432 Babcock Boulevard in Ross Township.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
