Charlotte finally has a cat café to compliment its handful of dog bars, so what better time to host a national juried exhibition centered on the critters in our lives? Capitalizing on America’s love affair with cats, dogs, marmosets and more, Ciel Gallery’s Animal House features art in any medium, as long as it focuses on animals. Prizes include honorable mentions, as well as a $500 Best in Show Award. The exhibition, judged by N.C. artist Elizabeth Bradford, runs through January 27.
