THE much-awaited 12th London Exhibition for The Society of Feline Artists will be held at The Llewellyn Alexander Gallery from 3 to 22 September, 2007, open Monday to Saturday until 7.30pm.
The exhibition features the work of over 50 members of this prestigious Society. On show are over 300 oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels and etchings - making it the largest exhibition of feline art in the country.
‘Leventis Of Lemnos’ by Catherine Deligeorgi. Oil on canvas (15.7 x 13.7 ins, 400 x 350mm) - £850
Every aspect of the cat’s character is painted - beauty, independence, individuality, nobility and, of course, a touch of mischief. Cats have always provided comfort and amusement for the human race, and have been an inspiration to artists over the centuries. From the sophistication of the superior pedigrees such as the Chinchilla, Persian, Burmese, Birman, Siamese and Abyssinian to the charm of the friendly domestic tabby or tom. From the playful kitten to the wild cat - the styles and techniques are as various as the numbers of different breeds.
‘Penny’ by Jacqueline Gaylard. Acrylic on board (10.5 x 14.5 ins, 265 x 365 mm) - £1,700
All the paintings are for sale, with a price range from £80 to £2,500 - with the majority being under £750.
David Grant, the celebrity vet, will open the exhibition this year, making it an important date for the London diary in 2007. It is an exhibition that is keenly anticipated by cat lovers and collectors around the world.
