Meow Wow; A Cat & Lady Art Show
Time spent with cats is never wasted. - Sigmund Freud
There is no denying that cat culture is incredibly popular. Cats have held a captive audience in works of art, literature, in the home and today on the internet featuring prominently in many internet memes. While these depictions have been both positive and negative, one cannot deny the staying power of the imagery associated with cats, particularly their relationship with women. Witches familiars, ancient fertility goddesses, crazy cat ladies, Japanese cat girls and sexy leather clad feline villain women all show different sides of the ongoing relationship between cats and women in a cultural sense. Why are people drawn to cats this way?
Meow Wow explores these relationships by having a selected group of women artists come together and show their cat themed artwork in one location. Each artist has been free to interpret the show theme of cats and women as they see fit. Each has a unique artistic style and approach that makes for a varied and interesting group show.
The artists have also teamed up with Cat Busters and will be donating 10% of all art sales to the cause!
