This is a very different year and a very different auction. Please be patient and I am open to suggestions for improvement, although I hope we don’t have to do this again!
I know the photos do not do the art justice, but I tried to reduce any glare and/or distortion. When possible, I included a photo sent from the artist without the framing and glass.
Please excuse any errors in advance 🙂 This is my first venture into online only. I hope all errors are minor.

There will be no reception or live auction on Saturday this year, and I will very much miss seeing all my artist and Cat Guardian friends.
I would encourage anyone who can to stop the gallery (masks required) and see the artwork up close. If you use the computer, just brighten your screen to get the best look at the color and detail.
Enjoy!!

Here’s to 2021……Phew! 😼

Very Warm regards

Artist Statement: Cats are quirky, one minute you see their pretty face , and the next moment they’ve turned around, and are gone in a flash….. I currently have 2 black cats, so when I do get to see their beautiful faces, often all I see are eyes and whiskers
