Oksana the painting dog made her debut at the Long Island Picture Frame & Art Gallery earlier this month, where visitors got a special treat of seeing her creativity in action at the charity art auction. The event was a benefit for Canine Companions for Independence and featured major Long Island artists as well as Canine Companions graduates and volunteers.
“She has a rather unique, unusual talent,” said Karina Windsor of Oksana’s artistic prowess. “We wanted to showcase her new talent at Long Island Picture Frame & Art Gallery.”
More than 50 original works art were up for auction. Each work donated was animal related, and all proceeds benefit Canine Companions for Independence Northeast Region on Long Island.
The live event and big attraction was the dog “artist” painting in the gallery. Oksana is Canine Companions Assistance Dog, and she was accompanied by Canine Companion Puppies in-Training who will one day be highly trained assistance dogs, Graduate Teams and all the artists who have generously donated to this fundraiser.
