The exhibit will be up through the end of May.
When: April 25, 7-9 pm
Where: Anthony David Salon, 120 Cambridge St, Burlington, MA. 781 272-0002.
The goal of the evening is to raise enough money to purchase a specialized SWAT bulletproof vest for Burlington police dog, K-9 Havoc, from the sale of the art. K-9 Havoc and his handler, Officer Papsedero will also be on hand.
Anthony studied at Mass College of Art, The Art Institute, The Museum School, Montserrat College of Art and California Institute of the Arts. His work has been featured in many Boston art Galleries. For the first time it will be on display in his salon.
K-9 Havoc & Officer Papsedero are members of the NorthEastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC) Regional Response Team (RRT). The NEMLEC RRT is comprised of officers from 53 municipal police and sheriff agencies in Middlesex and Essex Counties. Because of their unique and specialized skills, Ofc. Papsedero and K-9 Havoc are also assigned to deploy with the NEMLEC SWAT team, a smaller, highly trained tactical unit within the RRT.
