This year in celebration of Henry Hudson’s discovery of our beautiful river, the Catskill Cats will be decorated in themes depicting the wonder of the this great valley we call home. The town of Catskill is just 20 minutes from the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn.
60 painted fiberglass felines will be sCATered along the historic Main Street in the Village of Catskill for this summer-long celebration, starting Memorial Day weekend (May 23- 25, 2009). Bring the kids, bring your camera and spend an afternoon prowling about with the capricious, whimsical, imaginative kitties. Don’t forget to visit the wide array of shops, galleries and eateries as you stroll. We guarantee you’ll go home with a smile
on your face.
Cat’n Around Catskill 2009 will culminate with a live auction of the fabulous felines at the Cat’s Meow Auction and Gala
on Sunday, October 4th at The Historic Catskill Point on the Hudson River.
The kitties will be looking for a permanent home. Come bid on the cat of your dreams and own a piece of history and memorabilia of the Quadricentennial Celebration.
We are especially excited about this year's litter of cats because two of them are being painted by Stanley Maltzman, a wonderful local artist who also teaches a drawing and pastel workshop here at our inn. This year the class is scheduled for July 26 - August 1, 2009. Check out our workshops website for more details on this class with a master artist.
This is an example of Stanley's work.
