For centuries, domestic cats have been both companions and muses for artists around the world. The fourth annual Cat Art Show in Downtown Los Angeles honors this purr-fekt compared to a group exhibition with over 8o works of art inspired by the cat shape.
The 10-day event includes sculptures, paintings, collages, prints and other eclectic pieces based on cats and the relationship between humans and cats. Former art journalist Susan Michals came up with the idea a few years ago as a way to combine her many passions. “That Cat Art Show has given me an opportunity to introduce people to art in its many forms through a form in particular – the feline, ”Susan Michals, creator and curator of Cat Art Show, explains My Modern Met. “Cat Art Show attracts artists from all over the world, and many of them do not even have cats, but they can appreciate the beauty of the animal and turn it into something magical that will hopefully touch the hearts and minds of those who come through our exhibition. ”
About 70 artists from around the world have contributed work to the event. All of these pieces offer a unique perspective on cats – exploring their personality, actions and form. “With cats, you never know what to expect – physically or emotionally,” Michals continues. “Personally, they can be enigmatic, evasive, loving, naughty — all over a period of two minutes. These creatures offer joy, comfort and a reality check against stress and small worries in our everyday lives. “All exhibited art can be purchased, and 10% of all sales go to cat car organizations Kitt Crusaders, Faces of Castelar and Milo’s Sanctuary.
Cat Art Show: New Beginnings will be shown from October 14 to October 24, 2021 at the Golden Pagoda (formerly Hop Louie) in Downtown Los Angeles. Proof of vaccination or negative COVID test within 48 hours is required to enter. You can reserve your free tickets here.
