The ‘Cool Cats’ Project is a partnership between Cool Arts Society and the Okanagan Cat Coalition (OKCC). The project 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/diversabilities) 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 Rena Warren.
The Cool Cats Project was generously funded by the City of Kelowna
An Exhibit Opening Reception and Cat Adoption Event will take place from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm on Saturday, August 18th. The event will also include an interactive art activity, facilitated by artist Sarah Parsons, that the public is invited to participate in.
