FRIEND of the Iroquois Hunt hounds and renowned bronze sculptor Belinda Sillars has kindly agreed to donate one of her limited-edition bronzes to this year’s Hound Welfare Fund benefit dinner and auction on June 4 at the Grimes Mill in Lexington, Ky. The 12″ by 9″ work (above) is No. 13 of 25. Thank you, Belinda, or your generosity to the retired hounds!
This is the latest in a string of great art that will be available for bidding at the auction, which also will feature the unveiling and sale of a new charcoal and white pastel drawing by famed sporting artist Andre Pater. Pater, a member of the Iroquois Hunt, has spoken eloquently about the hunt’s hounds and the Hound Welfare Fund that provides for these generous canine athletes when their working years are over. The auction also will include works by such sporting artists as Sandra Oppegard, Hazel Morgan, Sally Moren, Ena Lund, Judy Boyt, and others.
Art isn’t the only thing up for bid at the auction! To see information on more items, click here and here for a sampling of this year’s art and other items. To learn more about how to bid on items even if you’re not able to attend the event, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
And remember: the Hound Welfare Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity. All donations go directly to the care of our retired hounds!
