Visit the exhibition online at @tiny.cat.gallery
“A Night with Mary White” is a interpretation of life through memories, storytelling, and imagination, presented in a domestic yet surrealist space, I have collected my research through others memories and anecdotes and a handful of photography I have attempted and get to know my great grandmother.

Tiny Cat Gallery Film Club. Open Call
Have you made a short film you think the micro gallery community would like?
- It could be stop motion, drawn and animated, computer generated or filmed.
- It might be a tiny gallery tour or something about small artworks.
- We like films that feature cats in a lead role as we are generally under represented.
- We may be interested in mouse related cookery shows, films that feature warm places to sleep or documentaries about successful ways to annoy humans.
- Message us a link and a little bit about the film.
- If we like it we will share it. We are doing this for fun, not for money.

Curating the Tiny Cat Gallery taught me valuable lessons that help me work with full size galleries now. This book is where I share that advice.
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.
