‘The Hidden Paw’ exhibition at Fosse Gallery, Stow-on-the-Wold
Sunday 4 – Saturday 24 September
The Fosse Gallery has invited nine artists to paint around the theme of The Hidden Paw, the favourite children’s poem by T S Eliot, ‘Macavity, the Mystery Cat’…
The nine artists chosen to participate in this exhibition are Nicola Slattery, Lydia Corbett, Mick Rooney RA, Jane Ford, Pamela Kay, Alex Williams, Lucy Pratt, George Underwood and Anthony Yates. The resulting works offer a feast for the eyes and a window into what inspires these leading artists. Since they are not primarily ‘feline artists’, this is an exciting way for them to express their imagination, humour and freedom for the subject.
The exhibition features lots of cats – domestic and wild as well as other-worldly – and there are also paws belonging to other creatures such as hares and dogs.
This is a very varied show, with each artist bringing their own depiction of the subject in oils, watercolour and acrylic. Prices of the works range from £500 to £6,000 and 10% of profits from all sales will go to support the charity International Cat Care.
The exhibition can be viewed online at the gallery’s website from mid-August and the Private View is at the gallery on Sunday 4 September from 11am–4pm. Fosse Gallery is open Monday to Saturday, from 10:30am–5pm.
