FELINE FINE: ART OF CATS II
Produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C.

FELINE FINE: ART OF CATS II is a sequel to the popular 2003 traveling museum exhibition which also generated the companion exhibition, PAWS AND REFLECT: ART OF CANINES. FELINE FINE is being revived now a decade later due to popular demand. FELINE II consists of 50 paintings and sculptures by leading artists who specialize in the subject of cats. Artworks in FELINE FINE: ART OF CATS II portray domestic breeds and wild cats in a variety of places and styles. Each exhibiting artist was invited to display three to four works to demonstrate the range of her/his particular subject matter and treatment of these fascinating animals.

Cats have been domesticated since prehistoric times and have often been the objects of superstition as well as veneration, notably, for example, by ancient Egyptians. Today, they continue to fascinate and intrigue humans, as exemplified by the musical comedy, CATS, one of the longest running shows on Broadway, and countless myths, poems and stories. Cats are carnivorous mammals of the Felidae family. Cats comprise both the domestic breeds (Abyssinian, Burmese, Siamese, Persian, etc.), and wild breeds including the great cats (lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs), and the smaller wild cats (lynx, bobcat, ocelot, etc.). Highly adapted for hunting and devouring their prey, cats have relatively short muzzels, large eyes, sensitive whiskers, and sharp claws and teeth. Most have long tails, and all have a flexible musculo-skeletal system. Most wild cats are solitary, though lions live in groups called prides. Male cheetahs (usually brothers) will sometimes stick together in groups called "coalitions" but cheetah families don't stick together like lion prides. The females are almost always solitary, raising their cubs alone. Besides the common house cat, the species F. catus includes many recognized breeds maintained by selected mating. Domestic breeds have coats of various lengths and colors in a variety of patterns, making them, like their wild cousins, wonderful subjects for artists.
