“Reflecting a Love of Life”
Arts on Main is pleased to present original artworks and collectibles from the collection of Dean and Cam Williams. This vibrant, eclectic, once-in-a-lifetime show opens with a welcome reception at Arts on Main, on First Friday September 3, from 6 PM to 8 PM, and runs until September 28.
Dean and Cam Williams’ personal collection reflects their commitment to community, lifetime of advocacy on behalf of pets in need and appreciation of nature’s beauty. Among the many renowned artists included in the show are Linda St. Clair, Barbara Olsen, Virginia Greenleaf, Jeanne Marston and Carol Colette.
Throughout their lives, Dean and Cam steadfastly devoted their time and efforts to ensure homeless pets received the care and compassion, dignity and respect they deserve.
