Cat Art Show Los Angeles will be the largest multi-artist exhibition of cat inspired artwork for sale ever exhibited. Admission is Free.
CAT ART SHOW LOS ANGELES is a both a meditation and a celebration of the feline form. This exhibition goes beyond heralding felines as domesticated companion, and instead explores their role as muse and inspiration.
Aloof one moment and adoring the next, their behavior alone is a constant source of artistic fodder destined for reinterpretation. Then there is their adroit physicality; be it lounging languorously across our still unread newspaper, or their instinctive predatory sensibilities.

Cats have been part of our lexicon (not to mention our home life) for thousands of years. The Egyptians frequently aligned them with the gods, like Bastet, the goddess of warfare. Later, great artists like Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, and Pablo Picasso all created masterpieces centered around cats, sometimes showcasing them as companion, sometimes around something much deeper symbolically.
All in all, art featured in Cat Art Show Los Angeles is a contemporary examination of the psychology, inspiration, and physical impact of cats in our lives.
A portion of proceeds will benefit the Stray Cat Alliance.
