Custom Pet Portraits Wed 12/13/17

How would you like a hand painted pet portrait? Would it make the perfect Christmas gift for you or someone you love?

As a special THANK YOU! for anyone coming to the Grafton Art Gallery on Saturday, December 9th from 3-6pm, talented artist Janet Aleid will hand paint a portrait for you *while you wait* of a pet. Her portrait will be 5×7 in size, ideal for framing. You just bring in a clear photo of your pet for her to work from. It’ll be just $10.

It’s well worth a visit!
