Cat’n Around Catskill 2014

As promised in my Harvest Monday, September 15 post, below are 6 of the 50 cats on view in the Village of Catskill, NY, May through September 20, 2014.

This is the 8th Cat’n Around Catskill exhibit, and what an exhibit it is. As you can see from the photos below, each artist had put a great deal of work into his/her cat. The details are amazing.

The cats are mounted on pedestals. Most of them are on Main Street, others are on Route 23B, West Main Street and Route 9W.

On Saturday, September 27 at 3 p.m. there will be an Auction & Gala at the Historic Catskill Point. The proceeds from the auction will benefit Participating Artists, Local Not-for-Profits, Barry Hopkins Art Scholarship Fund and Heart of Catskill Association for future Catskill promotion.

To view a gallery of all the 2014 cats go to

    Hi Norma, Wow those sculptures are SO good. Reminds me of towns in Vt that do cows with lots of color and charm. Would be cool to see cats. Maybe next year! Phyll

    It’s great that your daughter took the images for you. I love these quirky cats and I love how they’re all on pedestals. I think my favourite is the pharaoh xx

  15. This looks like so much fun! Our city had a similar event years ago with big cows that each artist painted.. then they were auctioned off for charity. I still see the odd cow downtown or in someone’s yard, they’re really a cool piece of art if you can bid on them. One of these would look great in your garden:)

    I can’t believe I missed this one, thanks so much for posting. The cats are indeed quite clever and thoughtful! In Toronto, we had moose, Zurich, Switzerland had cows, naturally!
