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.
The London show opened it’s doors for the private view on gorgeous summers day. The show looked wonderful and everyone enjoyed a glass of champagne 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 has wonderful stories to get everyone laughing.
David drew the winning ticket for the Friends Prize Draw, which this year is Little Cyan, by Jacqueline Gaylard. Congratulations to Aphrodite Rose who won this beautiful painting. If you would like a chance to win a painting by a SOFA member please become a Friend of the Society.
Kay thanked Jillian and the staff at Llewellyn Alexander for their hard work on our behalf and presented the society’s gifts to show our appreciation. There was a beautiful flower arrangement for Jillian and chocolates for the staff and of course a gift for David too.
Then came the announcement of the gallery prize. It was won this year by Madelaine Winter for Splendid Stripes. Congratulations Madelaine, a very beautiful painting and a well deserved prize.
With the show officially declared open every one enjoyed chatting and looking at the work.
We also had a special canine guest at this years show who got her fair share of the attention. pretty little ruby.
The show is on until the 16th of September 2016 at Llewellyn Alexander, opposite Waterloo Station in London.
There are lots more photos of the exhibition if you’d like to see them.
The Gallery Photos
The gallery photos show the hang of the exhibition. As usual we couldn’t photograph all the paintings as there are areas were we couldn’t get to and there are a lot of reflections too, especially those paintings hanging in the windows, but hopefully it will give those members who couldn’t attend an idea of how it all looks.
