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.
