Feline Fine: Art of Cats Opening at the Neville
Green Bay, WI---March 2, 2016---Looking for the purr-fect way to escape the cold? Feline Fine: Art of Cats is opening this weekend at the Neville.
This traveling exhibition consists of 50 new paintings and sculptures by leading artists who specialize in the subject of cats. Artworks in Feline Fine portray domestic breeds and wild cats in a variety of styles ranging from photo-realism to painterly impressionism. We’ll also be featuring winning photo submissions from our #NevilleCats Instagram contest and exclusive new footage of zookeeper interaction with the big cats in partnership with the NEW Zoo.
The Neville is also partnering with the Bay Area Humane Society and Cats Anonymous for Feline Fine programming including:
