On October 26, 2013, Friends of Linden Animal Shelter (FOLAS) sponsored an art gallery held by Marlin Art Inc. of Deer Park, NY, at The Presbyterian Church in Westfield. The event was a huge success, helping to raise money for the dogs and cats at FOLAS seeking their "fur-ever" home.
An auctioneer from Marlin Art educated the guests with the history of the artists behind the works. Some items were rare and worth much more than the sale prices.
Guest artist at the event was John Stanisci, a professional illustrator for Marvel and DC Comics for over 18 years and a Broadway actor, who has drawn well-known characters such as Spider-man, The Hulk, Batman, Catwoman and Superman. Mr. Stanisci entertained guests to the auction by drawing sketches during the event.
