Gallery 550 Raises Funds for Operation Kindness at Head to Head Exhibit

artistGlobe Runner, an Addison, Texas-based digital marketing agency that doubles as a local art gallery, is celebrating the coming of spring with a new quarterly exhibit. For the last few years, the two-time Addy award-winning firm has used its available wall space to highlight artists in the community, offering residents and visitors a shot of culture. This quarter’s talents are esteemed artists Dylan Eakin and Rita Hendricks.

In addition to their ineffable artistic eye, these creatives are also generous, teaming with Globe Runner to give back $600 to Operation Kindness, North Texas’s original & largest no-kill animal care and adoption center.

Globe Runner’s Spring Artist Exhibition

Last Thursday, April 26th, Head to Head opened at Gallery 550. The gala was one part cocktail party, one part charity event. It was an evening of refreshments, music, and original art that culminated with one lucky family taking home some seriously adorable raffle winnings.

Above are the winners of a personal pet portrait lovingly crafted by Hendricks. In total, more than $600 in donations from this season’s gala raffle were accepted by Amber from Operation Kindness.

Globe Runner founder and art supporter, Eric McGehearty, warmly introduced both artists then invited guests to marvel at Eakin’s extremely detailed human pencil portraits and Hendricks’ watercolors pet portraits.

As always, Globe Runner is pleased to host these important works and trust the members of our Addison community were as moved as we were by the display.
