Today at Big Cat Rescue Feb 8 Fur the Love of Arts and Cats

Art Show to Benefit Big Cat Rescue

Hoffman Porges Gallery in Ybor City, in cooperation with the Ybor Art Association, will host a one-night event to benefit Big Cat Rescue of Tampa Bay.

Called “Fur the Love of Art and Cats,” it’s a wild affair featuring art, a silent auction, entertainment, refreshments and a special door prize.

The creativity displayed on the “Wall of Cats” in the gallery is by a group of local artists who were allowed for one time only to visit the Big Cat Rescue sanctuary for inspiration and photographs. From what I’ve seen so far, the result is a rich assortment of big cat-themed works in the form of photographs, oil and acrylic paintings, sculptures and mixed media works.

Those artists who are willing to donate at least 10 percent of any sales to the event’s charity are placed on the “Wall of Cats” in the gallery. In the silent auction, all of the proceeds from the sale of art and other items donated by local businesses will go to Big Cat Rescue.
