Vista Studios has something great planned for Vista Nights next Thursday, July 17, (5-8pm).  We are partnering with Carolina Wildlife Care!  They will bring some of their animals to Vista Studios / Gallery 80808, 808 Lady Street, and artists are welcome to come set up and use them as models!  Won’t that be fun!  They may bring hawks, owls, turtles, flying squirrels, etc!  I can’t wait to see what happens.  Please include their link: in any of the advertising for this event.  They are a small organization doing big things and can use any help.  

Any artist is welcome to come and join the painting session.
Photography will be allowed also.  

The public is invited to join us. Awesome opportunity to see artists working with animals! A good time for sure. Please share if you know artists that may want to participate! : )
