Art for Dogs’ Sake is supported by the organisers of Hadleigh Art Trail, who are based at Hadleigh Old Fire Station. The Trail is an annual arts event now in its fifth year, popular with artists and visitors alike. Hadleigh Art Trail is a professionally run not-for-profit, community focussed event that receives no external funding.

How does it work?
Submit as many works as you wish along with a submission fee for each work. Follow the three easy steps under our SUBMIT section on our website.

Who’s behind Art for Dogs Sake?
Artist-focussed, Art for Dogs’ Sake has been created by artists based at Hadleigh Old Fire Station (HOFS). It is an opportunity to raise funds for the Hadleigh Art Trail in 2015 and for Love Cyprus Dog Rescue, which has been set up by one of HOFS’ studio holders to raise awareness of the hundreds of neglected, abused and abandoned dogs in Cyprus.
For more information please see ‘about’ on the website.
