BARK IF YOU LOVE ART!
Tails by the Lake is hosting the 5th annual Art Bark Fest- Animal Art & Wine Festival at the Village at Squaw Valley, USA. Visit gorgeous Lake Tahoe and enjoy sipping fine wines and browsing fine art underneath the peaks of Squaw Valley. The Art Bark Fest was created to combine the love of art & wine with the love of animals and is one of the only animal themed fine arts and wine festival in the country. The artwork varies from the work of Cholla the horse that paints abstract watercolors to a jeweler who creates a 14K gold necklace from your own dog's nose imprint. The unique artists attending the event vary from fine jewelry to crystal sculptures to oils and watercolors. See all the unique animal themed artists & craftsman who have attended Art Bark Fest below or at this link - Art Bark Fest Artists. 10% of all artwork sales at the event goes to The Humane Society of Truckee-Tahoe so buy some great art at Art Bark Fest and help a great cause!
