Yesterday I, Zeb the Duck , and mom explored Lakewood Arts Council Gallery.
The special exhibit is cats.
This is Tails of the Painted Cats time. We loved all the cat art. Here are a few of the cats.
Movie watchers will recognize this tiger,
Richard Parker, from Life of Pi. This is the only cat art with real cat whiskers. He looks wonderful
We also like his friend,
a pipe-smoking cat with a monocle.
The cat art will be auctioned at Tails of the Painted Cats Gala Dinner and Auction on Saturday, July 26, 2014. The auction and dinner will be held at Pinehurst Country Club and benefit of the Cat Care Society.
The Cat Care Society offers limited admission cage free shelter for homeless and abused cats while providing community outreach programs to enrich the lives of people and cats.
Visit www.catcaresociety.org for more information. This is a really interesting and informative website.
New this year is the Flat Cat Paintings.
What is Flat Cats?
This cat not only has the glasses he is wearing, but there are two additional pair of glasses the will accompany this cat to his new home.
Another flat cat
Mom and I love these cats.
There will also be paintings done by real kittens. These have not been created yet, but kitten paws are put in paint. Then the kittens walk and prance on white or dark canvas. The resulting paintings are wonderful. Go to the auction July 26 and bid on some of these pieces of art.
Maybe this one? You will be happy you went.
We enjoyed this exhibit at Lakewood Arts Council Gallery at 85 S Union in Lakewood, Colorado. The cats will be here until May 29.
From May 30 to June 22 this exhibit will be at Main Street Gallery in Evergreen, Colorado. This is a wonderful gallery. We especially appreciated the different types of art. Lakewood Arts Council Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and it is free. We thought this zebra was fabulous also.
Mom and I will come back here. We hope you do, too. Visit www.Lakewoodartscouncil.org for more information.
