Llewellyn Alexander Gallery
The annual Exhibition for The Society of Feline Artists is on at the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery in London and it features the work of Full and Associate members of SOFA. It was a very special show, our 20th, and we celebrated with cake and champagne.
The 20th London show opened it’s doors for the private view on a blustery September day. The show looked wonderful and everyone enjoyed a glass of champagne and a piece of the celebration 20th show cake as well as the chance to see so much wonderful cat art.
Kay Young, our chairman, gave the welcoming speech and then the show was opened by our Patron David Grant, a great speaker who always gets everyone laughing.
David drew the ticket for the Friends Prize Draw.
