MIAMI - Nov. 7, 2018 - PRLog -- The 6th annual ENDANGERED: Art4Apes Fine Art and Photography Exhibition, which focuses on endangered and threatened species, or habitats, will return to the Dade Heritage Trust from December 5-8, 2018.  Held during the same week as Art Basel, this exhibition features classes, live paintings, and discussions, as well as a showcase of the finest work entered in the contest. Proceeds from the contest and exhibition benefit the Center for Great Apes, an award-winning, Florida-based, 501(c)(3) registered sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees.

ENDANGERED: Art4Apes was launched in 2012 to raise awareness of issues facing animals and the environment. Each submission reflects the interpretation of "endangered," as it applies to animals, nature, the environment, and plant species, in three artistic categories: Fine Art, including sculpture, jewelry, and wearable art; Photography; and a special category exclusively for young artists. All entry fees for the contest and the proceeds from art sales during the exhibition go to the Center for Great Apes, a 4-Star Charity Navigator rated non-profit, sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees.

ENDANGERED: Art4Apes will host a series of special events. Opening at 2 P.M. on Wednesday, December 5, the exhibition will include live painting programs by Karen Kliethermes, a Colorado-based visionary artist, illustrator and instructor; a photography masterclass, taught by Ted Schiffman, a student of Ansel Adams, National Geographic photographer and author; and, panel discussions with artists and photographers on capturing wildlife in photos and paintings. The final day of the exhibition, Saturday, December 8, will include special programs for young artists, including an art class with Karen Kliethermes and a visual photographic safari, led by Ted Schiffman. A cocktail reception will take place each evening of the exhibition.

The ENDANGERED: Art4Apes Exhibition will be held at Dade Heritage Trust at 190 SE 12th Terrace, Miami, FL 33131. A full schedule of events can be found at http://www.Art4Apes.com.
