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.
This exhibition will be on display from February 9 - July 15, 2018.
The opening reception for this exhibition will be held on February 22 from 6-8pm. Please see our events calendar for more information!

This exhibition celebrates the ingenuity, creativity, and perseverance of Shearwater Pottery as a catalyst for the arts on the Gulf Coast.
This exhibition will be on display from August 1 - January 30, 2019
