The Adams Art Gallery and the Lakeshore Humane Society are collaborating to benefit both the arts and animals. The exhibit, "The Art of Animal Love," will feature art inspired by animals created by local artists. A special reception for the show will be held Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Adams Art Gallery, 600 Central Ave., Dunkirk.
