Studio Debut Benefits Altered Tails

Artist Chad Little opens Little Studio to guests

Around 100 guests attended Paradise Valley artist Chad Little’s exhibit to debut his new Little Studio on Nov. 9. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the evening’s sales, which totaled almost $17,000, were allocated to Valley nonprofit Altered Tails, Arizona’s largest spay/neuter clinic network.

Guests, including Altered Tails founders Bea and Dick Barnhart, had the opportunity to meet Little at his studio and view his latest paintings.

The “Misfits” collection featured original oil paintings on canvas, inspired by vintage photos of unique subjects from around the country. The collection is in keeping with Little’s passion for animal welfare causes and the countless rescue dogs and cats that Altered Tails performs spay and neuter surgeries on every day to assist Arizona’s animal welfare organizations in decreasing the unwanted pet population.

The Little Studio, designed by Scottsdale-based Chen + Suchart Studio, is a suspended steel and glass structure and currently is being considered for an American Institute of Architects Architectural Design Award.

One hundred percent of the proceeds from any artwork sales goes to support Little’s foundation skinnypigs.org and the organizations it supports, Altered Tails being one of them.
