No matter how busy life gets, animals always have the power to transport us back to the present moment.

On First Thursday, when major art galleries share their newest exhibits in Portland's cultural district, Gallery 135 is hosting the art show "Feed the Animals" from 5:30 to 9PM. Located at 135 NW Park Avenue, Gallery 135 is home to IDL Worldwide and Portland's creative community.

On Thursday, October 3, 2014 work by featured artists Kara Burke and Sheri Smith will be on display for “Feed the Animals,” a show dedicated to the creatures of the earth.

All art will be available for purchase, including doodles, paintings, prints, 3D pieces, pillows, screen prints and more.

“No matter how busy life gets, animals always have the power to transport us back to the present moment,” said Sheri Smith, featured artist and previous IDL Senior Visual Designer. “The fuzzy, fat, squishy, pokey, slimy, wonderful beasts who remind us all to slow down and appreciate the wilder things in life.”

Both artists have worked as full-time employees at IDL Worldwide. Kara Burke, IDL Office Manager, is an illustrator and crafter whose work is featured at a handful of local boutiques, including Crafty Wonderland. She has worked with various animal-loving clients, including PETA and pet rescues across the country. Full-time designer, Sheri Smith, has worked locally and exhibited internationally.
