Uptown Art holds art show fundraiser for city’s feral cats
Even if you’re a dog person, it’s hard to look at a kitten and not feel any warm fuzzies. Uptown Art feels those fuzzies and is holding The Art’s Meow on Sunday, Oct. 11 from noon to 4 p.m. to show it.
It’s a free art show where regional artists will present their feline-themed works for viewing and purchase, with the proceeds funding local, low-cost spay and neuters as well as providing medical care for feral cats. Artwork ranges from realistic cat portraits to cartoon scenes in which cats do what they do best: lie around.
While the artwork is for purchase, maybe you want to get your own creative cat juices flowing. To do so, just stick around after the art show is over, because following at 4 p.m. is a painting party in which you can paint your very own cat. Uptown Art owners Rona Hutchison and Kasie Lindley will provide step-by-step instructions on creating your own modern cat.
“No talent is required—just a sense of whimsy” (and a love for our fuzzy friends). The painting party is just $30, with $10 going to feral cats.
