Cat Tales: Art Exhibit July and August

July 7, 2020 - August 27, 2020

Sigmund Freud said it best. “Time spent with cats is never wasted.” Accordingly, the Placitas Community Library Art Committee is excited to offer an opportunity to observe a host of fascinating felines at rest and at play.

Beginning July 7 and continuing through August 27, this PCL exhibit will be available for the first time both in the library’s Collin Room and as a virtual exhibition online at PCLArt.com.

Cat sculpture looking up“Just like cats, the artwork for CAT TALES is beautiful, quirky, expressive, and unexpected,” says Elizabeth Potter, the exhibit’s coordinator. “Cats may have only one tail, but every cat has lots of tales to share.”

Each is told by participating artists in a unique and appealing way through mixed media on paper, appliqued and pieced quilts, pastel drawings and more.

Exhibitors include Susan Burden, Tobin Levy, Lesley Long, Melissa Lowry Mosley, Lavon Maestas, Mary Mahon-Foley, Linda Nystrom, Judith Roderick, Pam Troutman and Lisa Zawadzki.

As always, works are available for purchase with 25% of the price benefiting the library.

Yellowed Cat DrawingBeginning July 7, the CAT TALES exhibit can be viewed in the Collin Meeting Room during the library’s Special Operating Hours on Tuesdays 3-7 p.m., Thursdays 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturdays 1-5 p.m.
