An artistic treat for cat lovers and supporters of iCatCare

A unique art exhibition 'The Hidden Paw' is bringing together a stunning collection of paintings depicting cats, from a well-known selection of artists, with funds from sales going towards the work of the charity International Cat Care (iCatCare).

The exhibition is being held at the prestigious Fosse Gallery in Stow on the Wold, Gloucestershire from 4th – 24th September, who have chosen to show their support for iCatCare by donating 10% of the profits from the exhibition sales to the charity.

The Fosse Gallery has invited nine artists to paint around the theme of 'The Hidden Paw', the favourite children's poem by T S Eliot, 'Macavity, the Mystery Cat'. The nine artists chosen to exhibit are Nicola Slattery, Lydia Corbett, Mick Rooney RA, Jane Ford, Pamela Kay, Alex Williams, Lucy Pratt, George Underwood (the artist behind David Bowie's most famous album covers including Hunky Dory and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust) and Anthony Yates – all well-known artists to the gallery. 

None of the artists are known as feline artists and this is an exciting way for them to express their imagination, humour and freedom for the subject. There will be lots of cats, domestic and wild, as well as otherworldly and there may even be paws belonging to other creatures such as hares and dogs. This will be a very varied show with each artist bringing their own depiction of the subject in oils, watercolour and acrylic. 

The exhibition can be viewed online at from mid August. Opening hours are Monday – Saturday, 10.30am – 5.00pm. Prices range from £500 to £6,000.
