Arts Faire spin-off goes to the dogs

      Local artists donated art and jewelry.

      A spinoff of this weekend's

      Mid-Summer Arts Faire

      is going to the dogs this Friday.

      Volunteers have organized a wine and art sale, which will benefit for the

      Quincy Humane Society


      It will take place Friday evening from 5 to 8 p.m. at District Designs and Kristopher's on Maine Street.

      Local artists donated art and jewelry.

      The event will offer free wine along with food donated by County Market.

      "It's a fun evening," Quincy Humane Society Executive Director Sally Westerhoff said. "It's something different than what we usually do for our fund-raising events. It has a special flair."

      Second String Music donated a hand-painted guitar, which will be auctioned off at 6 p.m.
