For Houstonians fond of both art and animals, the 10th Annual Archway Gallery Juried Art Show, benefiting Rescue Bank exhibit is the perfect way to enjoy art and give back. Houston's Archway Gallery has partnered with animal welfare group Rescue Bank to raise awareness of a dire local need.

Starting July 17, Archway Gallery will be collecting donations of pet food, which will be donated to Houston area shelters. Donations are needed to help Houston area organizations maintain an emergency supply of pet food in advance of hurricane season.

Hurricane Harvey highlighted the lack of aid readily available for animals in need, particularly the lack of formal pet food banks in Houston. Rescue Bank, an international non-profit, strives to change that in Houston by providing grants in the form of donated pet food and has delivered more than 250 million meals to pets since 2011.

Nearly 300 pieces were submitted for Archway's open-themed show, which boasts  a variety of 2-D and 3-D art. Winners and honorable mentions were announced at a reception at the gallery on July 7 and all are on display until August 2.
