’Call of the Wild’, Nicola Slattery RBA
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 exhibit are Nicola Slattery, Lydia Corbett, Mick Rooney RA, Jane Ford, Pamela Kay, Alex Williams, Lucy Pratt, George Underwood and Anthony Yates – all well-known artists to the gallery. This exhibition offers a feast for the eyes and a window into what inspires these remarkable artists.
None of the artists are known as feline artists and this is an exciting way for them to express their imagination, humour and freedom for the subject. There will be lots of cats, domestic and wild, as well as other-worldly and there may even be paws belonging to other creatures such as hares and dogs. This will be a very varied show with each artist bringing their own depiction of the subject in oils, watercolour and acrylic. Prices range from £500 to £6,000.
‘Sleeping Cat and Flowers’, Pamela Kay
