Animal Instincts: A First Friday Benefit for the Santa Cruz SPCA

  • Home/Work 765 Cedar St Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States (map)

Pets – as much as furniture, art, and décor – make a space feel like home. To celebrate the various furry, feathered, and scaled animals that make up a family, Home/Work will host a critter filled First Friday on August 7th to benefit the Santa Cruz SPCA. Various artworks will be on display by local photographers, illustrators and painters, including Portia Shao, Janice Serilla, Constance Chandlee, Mike Bencze, and Alyssa Gintert, along with San Francisco-based illustrator Jeremy Fish and Philadelphia-based illustrator Michael Kappeler. Prints from the artists will be available, with a percentage of sales going to the Santa Cruz SPCA.

The Santa Cruz SPCA will bring two adoptable dogs, while Alyssa Gintert, founder of Seven Directions Institute of Art and Science, will bring her muse, Jessica the Frog to meet event goers. Come join us for unabashed squeals, plenty of pet talk, and a beer from Discretion Brewing.
