The 2009 Exhibition of the Society of Feline Artists

'Moody Blue'
On Tuesday I travelled to London to attend the 2009 Society of Feline Artists Exhibition held at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery.
I had met up with my friend, fellow artist Katherine Tyrrell. Katherine has written an exhibition review on her blog 'Making a Mark'

My paintings were in the window and the first thing that I noticed was that 'Moody Blue' had already sold, in advance of the official opening.
The opening was exceedingly well attended and as in past years opened by the patron of the Society, David Grant, well known celebrity Vet.
As always the standard was high and the work diverse. You can see lots of photographs of the event on the Society Blog. These can be viewed as a slide show or photo album.
My personal favourite was 'Geoffrey's Cat' by Natalie Mascall, not surprisingly it was already sold.
For anyone interested in feline art the exhibition is well worth a visit, it runs until 18/09/09 and the gallery is open until 7.30pm Monday to Saturday.

I also discovered that The Cat magazine had used an image of 'Moody Blue' to promote the exhibition. The Cat magazine is the official supporter magazine of Cats Protection. That was the finishing touch to a very pleasant afternoon.

Congratulations on the presale and the use of the image in the magazine!

Its a wonderful piece. I always love this colour in cats - British Blues are they?

I wish I were in London and able to go see the exhibition in person.

Congratulations! I can see why the portrait of this gorgeous cat sold so quickly. Absolutely stunning!

Dors said...

Congratulations Gayle. I am so happy for you.
Your exhibit is wonderful and the fur looks so realistic.

Great piece.

Jennie Norris said...

Congratulations, well deserved. This is gorgeous, his eyes are mesmerizing!

Laurene said...

Sincere congratulations Gayle. Moody Blue is remarkable and it's no wonder that it sold so quickly.

Those are indeed awesome news.
That painting is really good.
You can take the chance and travel to Lisbon, it's only a 2h30 flight :-)
Kathrine's blog is indeed one of the best around.

Kind regards,
