Of all the creatures that inhabit the earth, none have inspired artistic contemplation as much as the cat. Walter Anderson found wild and domesticated cats to be able and willing subjects for his artwork. He painted, sculpted, drew, and carved the image of cats throughout his life. This exhibition is dedicated to Walter’s love of cats and their constant, often humorous, presence in his artwork.
