The Stray Kat Gallery opened in 2012, as the first art gallery in the Chelsea Market, with an exhibition of two New York City artists who started their careers selling their work on the streets of Manhattan in mobile pop-up shows from the Meat Packing District to Madison Avenue. The buzz they created had been building among collectors around the world. Upon meeting the duo, their charismatic sensibility and artistic style caught the eye of Stray Kat.
The Stray Kat Gallery made it's debut in Chelsea Market's 4,200 sq ft event space this past June, featuring the works of abstract expressionist ran for three weeks. The successful show culminated in the move painter Stella Michaels, and Jap Pop Art's Zane Fix, in a full blown installation that ran for three weeks. The successful show culminated in the move next door to the permanent gallery space, which now provides visitors the rare in-house experience of meeting the artists themselves. Both Ms. Michaels and Mr. Fix works add a wonderful splash of color not only to the Chelsea Market itself, but to lives of all those who enter the refreshing world of Stray Kat.
