JUNEAU - KTOO wants art entries for its first-ever Dog & Cat Show, to be held Friday, March 4, at the station office.
"We know many who have been inspired by their pets, and we'd like to showcase their art featuring those inspirations," said Jeff Brown, organizer of the show.
Entries will be accepted during normal business hours between Feb. 28 and March 2, unless other arrangements have been made.
The exhibition is open to all kinds of artists, but is limited to work ready to hang, with a maximum size of 20-by-30-inches or free-standing, if a pedestal is provided.
"We are open to most things, including art by dogs and cats themselves," said Brown. "As long as it's presented well."
The jury will include a panel of artists and pet lovers. Local businesses will donate prizes. Many of the works will hang at KTOO during March, and any proceeds from the sale of the works will benefit the station.
As part of the exhibit, KTOO-FM will feature songs about dogs and cats and host a radio call-in program, inviting listeners to call in with their pet stories.
