Many Art Shoppe artists are unabashed cat lovers, and they enthusiastically create cat images. Most of the artists are kept (ruled, bossed) by cats who direct their photography and participate in their art projects. This is the first Cats of the Art Shoppe post. More will follow!
Of course these images are for sale!
Kim Buell’s Cats
Neither of these cats belong to Kim. The Black and White cat belongs to a neighbor who has more than a dozen. This is the only one willing to pose. The Cat The Shadow belongs to her friend Bill.
Kip Shane’s Cats
Bastet — the City Kitty, has the most astonishing green eyes. Unless, of course, you find Bella’s eyes mesmerizing. Kip has both a magic camera and two cats eager to pose.

Welcome to the Art Shoppe!
We are a group of Minnesota artists who have gathered to present original and unique art in one of the most exciting sites in Minneapolis, The Midtown Global Market.
Located at 920 East Lake Street, the Market is a great place to shop, to eat, and to buy art.
The Art Shoppe has six artist-owners and 90 Minnesota artist consignors whose work is original, unique, and all made in Minnesota.
We will use this blog to introduce you to our artists and their work, and to art topics of general interest. Join us in the Art Shoppe (7 days a week). Some of our artists have links to their websites. Have patience as we introduce e-commerce into The Art Shoppe retail mix.
