101 Exhibit is pleased to present CAT ART SHOW LOS ANGELES, curated by Susan Michals, featuring over seventy artists, the largest exhibition of its kind.
Opening Reception on Saturday, January 25th, 2014, 7-10pm
101/exhibit, 6205 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90038
This exhibition is 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. 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.
Partners include 101/exhibit, PicMonkey, Perrier, Peroni Beer, and The Walker Arts Center’s Internet Cat Video Festival. All artwork will be for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Stray Cat Alliance of Los Angeles.
