TONIGHT: The Itty Bitty Kitty Show

The Itty Bitty Kitty Show will be dedicated to the late Jadey Lady (pictured above in a superhero pose), the beloved longtime friend of artist AdrienneRose Gionta and her family.
The Itty Bitty Kitty Show started out as an idea for a fun little online slide show of kitty-cat art. I began accepting submissions last summer, but never set a date as it was sort of a back-burner project. But, long story short, the project has since been hijacked by PBJ and Lil Red Buttons. They grew impatient waiting for the show, and have now deemed themselves kitty curators and launched a marketing campaign and something called Two Tabbies Productions (now changed to PBJ and Lil Red Buttons Productions).

Lil Red Buttons and PBJ invite you to the Itty Bitty Kitty Show
While their fame, if only around the house, has gone to their heads (they're wearing sunglasses right now), I'm impressed with their first curatorial venture, and honored that they brought me on board as curatorial assistant and occasional referee (they sometimes have artistic differences).

Finally, everything is coming together and the Itty Bitty Kitty Show, featuring more than 50 works by 23 painters, illustrators, photographers and sculptors, will open  8 p.m. Monday (as in tonight) here on Arterpillar. That's right, no special grooming required. It's a come-as-you-are party. Just grab a steaming cup of catnip tea or a glass of your favorite wine and a hunk of cheese and come check out the kitties.

The online exhibition, a good Monday night sort of thing to do, is dedicated to Jadey Lady, the longtime friend of artist AdrienneRose Gionta and her family. Jadey moved on in December, but her poise and presence live on forever in the hearts of those she left behind.

Exhibiting artists will include: AdrienneRose Gionta, Alyson Gold, Amy Gross,  Barbara M. de Varona,  Carol Scott Scheibe,  Cynthia Drucker,  Diana Contreras, JC Bravo Jennifer Elderman Ford, Jennifer Love GirondaJudy Polstra, Justin Invi Vilonna, Kristin Frenzel,  Mark Davis, Marlene de Lazaro-Kublin, Misael Soto, Monique LassooijNiki Lopez, Paula Turk,  Steve Sticht Tabatha MudraVirginia Erdie and Virginia Fifield.

Don't forget. Tonight night. 8 p.m. ... Itty. Bitty. Kitty. If you miss the opening, come whenever you like. The show will remain on exhibit at least until the second annual Itty Bitty Kitty Show in 2014.

PBJ and Lil Red Buttons are very excited.
