Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico - The fourth annual 'El Río del Arte' art expo, to benefit the Colina Spray & Neuter clinic, is scheduled to take place on Sunday, December 6, from 12:00-6:00 pm - but this year it will be held at a new location - Oscar's Restaurant on the Isla Rio Cuale.
The Paso Ancho Art Association and its founders, internationally-renowned artists Ada Colorina, Carolina Archer and Karen Lahm, recently announced that they are looking for local artists to participate in this year's event, which they expect to top all previous events due to the remarkable new setting overlooking the Cuale river in downtown Puerto Vallarta.
Keeping with tradition, Río del Arte 2015 will also feature live music and entertainment in a family-friendly atmosphere, so it is expected to attract many visitors and locals.
Artists interested in participating are expected to submit photos and information about their art works via email by September 30, 2015. Due to space constrains, small and medium pieces are preferred. Artists are expected to provide their own display equipment, such as easels and screens.
Art sales and art works donated for raffle prizes will benefit Vallarta's Colina Free Spay-Neuter Clinic, a permanent facility in the Old Town/Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, providing spaying and neutering services for cats and dogs. Services are offered free to those who otherwise would be unable to get their pets neutered. Colette, the owner of Langostinos Restaurant, and Sabrina, the owner of Ruelas Property Management, teamed up in March of 2012 to open Puerto Vallarta's first stationary, free animal spay and neuter clinic.
