Hanging in There
Cartoonist Jim Davis said, “Way down deep, we’re all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.” That from the creator of the most iconic of office breakroom posters is a fitting entry point into the new exhibit Cat Tales opening this week and running through Aug. 27 at the Placitas Community Library. It’s hard to say what role libraries will play in the future, but the Placitas library is indeed hanging on with this multimedia exhibit of local artists’ depiction of cats that is offered both in person and online. Library hours are subject to change so it is best to check the library website before you go at placitaslibrary.com. You can also see the entire exhibit anytime online at PCLArt.com. (Clarke Condé)

Art depicting cats.
Sigmund Freud said it best. “Time spent with cats is never wasted.” Accordingly, the Placitas Community Library Art Committee is excited to offer an opportunity to observe a host of fascinating felines at rest and at play.
Beginning July 7 and continuing through August 27, this PCL exhibit will be available for the first time both in the library’s Collin Room and as a virtual exhibition online at PCLArt.com.
“Just like cats, the artwork for CAT TALES is beautiful, quirky, expressive, and unexpected,” says Elizabeth Potter, the exhibit’s coordinator. “Cats may have only one tail, but every cat has lots of tales to share.”
Each is told by participating artists in a unique and appealing way through mixed media on paper, appliqued and pieced quilts, pastel drawings and more.
Exhibitors include Susan Burden, Tobin Levy, Lesley Long, Melissa Lowry Mosley, Lavon Maestas, Mary Mahon-Foley, Linda Nystrom, Judith Roderick, Pam Troutman and Lisa Zawadzki.
As always, works are available for purchase with 25% of the price benefiting the library.
