Painting for Primates on International Monkey Day
If you’re going to be around the South Carolina Lowcountry next week, please join us for a “Paint it Forward” event at West Ashley Wine and Design, 1331 Ashley River Road, Charleston, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 14—which also happens to be International Monkey Day!
For $35 you will have the opportunity to create your own primate painting under the step-by-step guidance of local artist Calli Driggers. The fee covers materials and instruction, and a portion of the proceeds will go to benefit IPPL, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
The event is BYOB, but refreshments and a complimentary first glass of wine will be provided. Please plan to arrive around 15 minutes early to get set up, have a chance to learn more about the world’s apes and monkeys, and even purchase primate-themed gift items.
We will all be painting this portrait of handsome Gary, a retired gibbon who came to our sanctuary earlier this year from a Florida tourist attraction. Wouldn’t that make a unique gift?
RSVP at 843-573-3422 or go to the calendar at West Ashley Wine and Design and click on December 14/Monkey Day/Paint it Forward.
Shirley and I hope to see you there!
