Silent Auction To Benefit WR Animal Control

The Warner Robins Police Department Animal Control Division is hosting a silent auction featuring two original art pieces by Butler and Anthony Brown.

Butler Brown gained nationwide attention when one of his oil paintings hung inside the White House during the administration of former President Jimmy Carter.  Mr. Brown and his art were featured in popular magazines such as Newsweek, ARTnews, and People. 

Anthony Brown, son of Butler Brown, is a graduate of Savannah College Art and Design.  Mr. and His wife Penne are the owners of Butler Brown Gallery and Custom Framing.

Bidding for the two art pieces will continue until Friday, December 21, 2012 at the Butler Brown Gallery at 1849 Watson Boulevard.  The gallery is located behind the Chick-Fil-A restaurant. 

The money from the final bid will be applied toward the funding of spay/neuter procedures for animals from the Warner Robins Animal Control facility adopted by local animal rescue groups. 

This year’s silent auction will be the third year Mr. Brown and his family have partnered with the Warner Robins Police Department to help promote animal adoption and responsible pet ownership.
