The Cat's Meow

If you're a cat lover and an art lover as well, this is the purrfect show for you to check out! The opening reception is this Saturday, March 6 at the Intolerant Gallery in Hamilton but the show is already on and will run until the end of March. Believe it or not, I've got several things in the show... no new pieces to speak of, as time and energy did not permit me this year so far, but there are a ton of other artists showcasing their cat-devoted art.

My talented friend, one of the show's organizers, has several oil paintings in it. The one below, which also happened to win best in show at the Women's Art Association of Hamilton's 112th Annual Juried Exhibition (Spring 2008), is my favourite.

Pause, oil on canvas

As much as I'd like to go to the opening, traveling with Whitney right now is not very convenient. My friend has promised to take photos though, so I'll be able to experience the show that way. And hopefully we'll all be able to go to the next one, as there's talk of this becoming an annual show.
