The Society of Feline Artists (S.O.F.A) was founded in September 1994. The specific aims are to promote the work of the best cat artists, whether established or unknown.
The society has had an annual exhibition of cat paintings in London for several years, featuring over 60 artists, some of whom exhibit internationally and showing more than 200 paintings in a range of media, making it the largest exhibition of cat art in the country.
Subjects range from the humble moggy and the friendly domestic tabby to the more exotic breeds like Siamese, Burmese and Bengals and of course the big cats. From the nobility and drama of the wild cat to the playful kitten – all are painted with the mastery of artists who know and understand their subject.

The S.O.F.A. London Exhibition 2019 Is Now Over
Our 25th London show opened its doors on Monday the 9th of September in a new venue for us. This year we collaborated with Charlfred Fine Art to host a joint exhibition at the The Royal Opera Arcade (ROA) Gallery in Pall mall, in London. Called A Natural Collaboration: A Celebration of Fine Art by Charlfred Fine Art & Society of Feline Artists.
It was a new venue for us, it was our first joint show and we had sculpture for the first time too.
