Marking its 10th anniversary this year, Cat Art Show (previously) returns to Los Angeles for a warm and fuzzy celebration of everything feline. “The intricacies of their ever-changing personalities, coupled with the beauty of their physicality, offer rich subject matter for artists to work with,” says curator and founder Susan Michals. Every year, the initiative donates a portion of its sale proceeds, with ten percent going toward an organization that cares for vulnerable animals in the shelter system.

For one weekend only, visitors can take in work by nearly 50 artists from all over the world, including those familiar to long-time Colossal readers like Matthew Grabelsky or Colin Roberts. Lola Dupre’s many-eyed kitten named “Squits” and Annie Montgomerie’s friendly “Miss Pitch and Furl” have traveled across the pond, interspersed among frenetic felines like Vanessa Stockard’s exasperated furniture ravager or “Une Chat” on a tear by Léo Forest.

Cat Art Show runs from January 19 to 21 at Wallis Annenberg PetSpace in Los Angeles. Find more information and tickets on the show’s website.
