Cool Cats Exhibit Opening and Adoption Event
Saturday, August 18 11:00 AM
Join Cool Arts Society and the Okanagan Cat Coalition (OKCC) at the Cool Cats Project Exhibit Opening and Cat Adoption Event at the Rotary Centre for the Arts!
Check out this FREE event to enjoy feline-themed artwork in a variety of mediums, participate in a free community art project, and check out some of the beautiful cats that the OKCC has up for adoption!
The Cool Cats Project, which has been funded by the City of Kelowna, is a partnership between Cool Arts and the OKCC that is aimed at increasing awareness about the estimated 18,000 feral cats living in the Central Okanagan. The OKCC assists by spaying and neutering cats, then re-homing or releasing them to live out their lives without perpetuating the overpopulation problem.
Cool Arts artists (adults with developmental/diverse abilities) have created art, using cats as a theme, in various mediums (painting, clay sculpture) under the mentorship of local artists Lee Claremont, Sharilyn Kuehnel, Sarah Parsons, Potters Addict Ceramic Art Centre, and Rena Warren.
The Cool Cats Project is on tour throughout the Central Okanagan this summer and fall, stopping at the Rotary Centre for the Arts this August, where Cool Cats Project artwork will be exhibited all month.
