Thank you for your Cat Submissions!

Community Cat submissions are closed. Thank you to everyone from the community who has submitted their fur-babies and their cat companions to this exhibition. Starting July 16, at least one of everyone’s submissions will be on view in a video slideshow showcasing your beautiful felines.

This exhibition would not be possible without your support.

We will put a call out on our social media if we decide to open cat submissions again.

Thank you!
