Thank you to all the Cool Arts supporters and cat lovers who joined us at the Cool Cats Project Exhibit Opening and Cat Adoption Event at the Rotary Centre for the Arts! The FREE event included feline-themed artwork in a variety of mediums, a community art project, and some of the beautiful cats that the OKCC has up for adoption!
The Cool Cats Project, which has been funded by the City of Kelowna, is a partnership between Cool Arts and the OKCC that is aimed at increasing awareness about the estimated 18,000 feral cats living in the Central Okanagan. The OKCC assists by spaying and neutering cats, then re-homing or releasing them to live out their lives without perpetuating the overpopulation problem.
Cool Arts artists (adults with developmental/diverse abilities) have created art, using cats as a theme, in various mediums (painting, clay sculpture) under the mentorship of local artists Lee Claremont, Sharilyn Kuehnel, Sarah Parsons, Potters Addict Ceramic Art Centre, and
The Cool Cats Project is on tour throughout the Central Okanagan this summer and fall. The next stop will be the FINA Gallery at UBCO.
