Exhibition by the Society Of Feline Artists
Cats’ Protection National Cat Centre
13th – 23rd APRIL 2005
SOFA was invited to hold an exhibition in April 2005 at the National Cat Centre in Haywards Heath to help celebrate the opening of the UK's largest Cat Adoption Centre. SOFA is a supporter of Cats' Protection, giving an annual donation to the charity.
Cats' Protection had recently moved it's Centre to very impressive and exciting new premises known as the National Cat Centre in the heart of the beautiful Ashdown Forest in Sussex. For it's Grand Opening 2005 Cats' Protection invited SOFA to take part with an Exhibition of paintings by Full Members and Associate Members.
On show were paintings, drawings and prints of many kinds of cats, from the big cats to the domestic cats. From tabby, tuxedo and ginger cats to the more glamorous breeds, the Siamese, Burmese, Bengal and Persian cats.
The exhibition was very busy and it was a very successful event with many visitors traveling some distance to come and see the Centre and the exhibition. A percentage of all sales, both paintings and prints, went to Cats Protection.
