This month, a three year touring exhibition of fine art dedicated solely to cats commences in the United States. The collection, curated by Dr. David J. Wagner, will feature the work of several artists. However, all of the paintings and sculptures in “Feline Fine: Art of Cats II” reportedly focuses upon wild or domesticated cats as the central theme. This is something Jared Haftel and others find pretty interesting.
Dan Ostermiller, the President of the National Sculpture Society, is one of the artists who created pieces that will be included in the exhibition. Other artists reportedly include Aaron Blaise, Julie Bell, Janet Heaton, Kim Diment, Brian Jarvi, Sally Maxwell, Dino Paravano, Rosetta of Loveland, Colorado, David Rankin, Kay Williams, Nicholas Wilson and Wes and Rachelle Siegrist. The exhibition’s first stop will be Stauth Memorial Museum in Montezuma, Kansas.
Since many pet owners and feline fanciers enthusiastically support art celebrating cats, the event has already generated some interest. From an historical standpoint, cats have been depicted in works of art since ancient times. Reportedly, the new exhibition marks a sequel to a previous successful touring exhibition.
