Paws Cause 2012 – Pet Bowl Fundraiser










Mary and Alberto Tomas opened their studio/gallery on Dragon Street for best friends, both human and four-legged types. While there was a pound full of two-legged critters, the tail-wagging variety was represented by Panda, a one-year-and-three-month old Shih Tzu, that escorted KC Cermak.

The occasion was a silent auction of dog and cat bowls benefiting the SPCA, and we’re not talking your stainless steel or plastic types. These little gems were created by such artists as Rhea Ann Chamness. Early in the evening one of hers was going for $125.

Married 34 years, the artistic Tomases had hardly had time to recover from Mary’s latest project — creating 210 pieces for the new Omni Dallas Hotel. Her reaction to the project? “Dallas has given a nod to the artists” with the program. “I’ve never seen Dallas come together like that before. I’m proud of Dallas.”
