Second annual Art's Meow art show and sale

The second annual Art's Meow art show and sale is this Sunday, October 12. I've contributed these two quilted "kitty art" pieces. Both pieces are improvisationally pieced, raw-edge appliqu├ęd, and free-motion quilted with a small hanging sleeve on the back.

The Art's Meow Art Show and Sale celebrates our area's community cats as well as the 6th anniversary of the Cat Clinic of Chattanooga. Sales of the cat art goes to Wally's Friends to support low-cost spay and neuter services for the cats at local shelters and clinics.

I spoke with Dr. Marcia Toumayan, the owner of the Cat Clinic, today and she said there is a wonderful variety of mediums and price points in the art that will be at this year's event. Last year, I contributed this piece. Here are close-ups of this year's quilts.

The Art's Meow takes place at Uptown Art, Cherokee Blvd. and North Market, from noon to 4 pm on Sunday. Come out and celebrate, purchase feline-themed artwork made by area artists, and support the local community kitties! There will be cake and ice cream, and staff members from the Cat Clinic will be available with educational information and handouts about feral cats. A painting party will immediately follow the celebration with step-by-step guidance from Uptown Art personnel so you can create your own special painting of a modernistic cat. No painting experience is required.

Sounds purr-fect! Hope to see you there.
