Thank you for making the CAT PERSON show a Success...and it's only the Beginning!

A Great BIG Thank you to all the artists and cat persons who came out to our CAT PERSON show opening reception last night! It was a wonderful beginning to a great show, that you can now see online at www.argylefineart.com  Once at our website, simply click on the link titled "Cat Person"


At the reception and throughout the afternoon at the gallery today, we entered people's names with a donation,  to win this wonderful sweater. This playful cat on the sweater was needle felted with actual cat fur by Emily McEwan-Fujita, complete with a red bow and bell, and the name "Grumpy Cat" in Japanese. Simply amazing. Thanks Emily!

We are happy to announce that this sweater will now live in the same household as Tuxedo Stan- a very famous cat living in Halifax, that was even in the running for Halifax Mayor this past year! His parents were the lucky winners!

We asked people attending the opening to bring a tin of cat food with them or some "cat crunchies" and we are happy to announce we collected a lot of food which we will be donating to the Halifax Cat Rescue Society later on this week as well!

Here's a great article on the show- Please do come by next week to see these amazing works in person! : http://thechronicleherald.ca/artslife/692231-underdog-cats-take-star-billing
