TINY CAT GALLERY³ OPEN CALL
AW2020 sees a new pop up in the form of Tiny Cat Gallery³, this time it is a traditional white cube gallery. It is staffed and visited by small plastic cats.
TCG³ is constructed of glued and nailed sustainable OSB. It is painted white inside. The dimensions of the rear wall are just 18.2cm x 18.3cm.
The gallery has no theme and is open to submissions and proposals. Due to the light-hearted approach of the gallery I cannot show anything of a seriously political or sad nature. Exhibitions do not have to be about cats.
SUSAN PLOVER - A FEAST FOR YOUR EYES
The piece was created as a response to the scale of the gallery and as an image that would attract the resident audience of cats. The subject is deliberately riffing upon a cat who plays poker for FISH!

PHILIP RYLAND - RETROSPECTIVE
Tiny reproductions of larger pieces, each representing a different strand of Ryland's recent work. Through a series of loose painting and analogue and digital drawing techniques he pushes the work to abstraction.
Original work. 95 x 63mm, gesso primed paper mounted on foam board.
JO COFFEY - CAT A DAY
Exploring the immensely rewarding relationship that is being a human lucky enough to live with cats in their life. A lifetime of bottled up cats and art flow out. A journey of love and loss, of joy and pain.
Original work. pencil, pastel, sharpies and fine liners; watercolour, brusho, acrylics and textiles, papers and found items.
AMY J WILSON - DIVINE COSMONAUTS
SALLY ELDARS - BY THE SEASHORE
Eldars works intuitively and spontaneously using different techniques and materials. She also paints large seascapes and landscapes, which allow her to express feelings and emotions freely and impulsively, telling stories with bold messy shapes, lines, and bright colours.
GIOVANNA IORIO - VOICE PORTRAITS
Iorio turns voices of poets into images. She reimagines spectrogram into artworks as the unique representation of the human voice. You can see the colours of each voice and listen with your eyes.
LORRAINE WHELAN - LIMINAL
"Liminal" takes its name from both of the word’s definitions that the artist finds very relevant – 1. relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process; 2.occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.
