CELEBRATING OFF THE KERB GALLERY'S 100TH EXHIBITION BY RAISING FUNDS AND PROVISIONS FOR INGRID'S HAVEN
We will be collecting provisions and donating proceeds to Ingrids Haven - a not for profit, no kill, cat shelter. The shelter needs cat toys, treats, soft bedding, wet food and high quality dry food Please do not bring super market dry because of the high salt content in it which destroys the kidneys. Please bring your donations with you to the gallery, thank you!!
We'd like to acknowledge The Cat Motel for their support. If you purchase an artwork, your name will go into the draw to win a $100 voucher for your cat to stay at The Cat Motel.
In ancient Egypt cats were considered to be sacred, with the goddess Bastet often depicted in cat form, taking on the war-like aspect of a lioness. Anceint religions believed that cats are exalted souls, companions or guides for humans that they are all-knowing but are mute so they cannot influence decisions made by humans. In Japan, the Maneki-neko is a cat that is a symbol of good fortune. Freyja, the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility in Scandinavian mythology, is depicted as riding a chariot drawn by cats. Likewise, many cultures have negative superstitions about cats. There is a belief that a black cat crossing one’s path leads to bad luck, or that cats are a witch’s familiar, used to augment that witch’s powers and skills. Today, cat lovers obsessively share photos of their beloved felines on various social media sites sparking the internet craze of cats like Grumpy Cat, Colonel Meow and Cooper.
