About

Art Cats Gallery was founded by owner Louise Hopson. Louise has been creating bright and joyful one-of-a-kind pieces in clay for over 30 years.

ABOUT LOUISE HOPSON

Louise lives in the Lakeside District of Muskegon near Lake Michigan with her adoring husband John and blissfully happy dog Bucatini al Dente. When they aren’t creating art, they love to float around on their custom Pontoon boat and walk the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan.

ARTIST STATEMENT

What am I doing and why am I doing it? These are questions an artist asks many times over the course of a lifetime. As we change and grow, re-focus and re-direct our energies, we reinvent ourselves. My artwork is an extension of myself. It changes and metamorphosizes as do I.

In my work, I explore themes of joy, celebration, romance, empowerment, environment and self awareness and I enjoy playing with color and pattern, order and disarray, rough edges and soft lines. Repetition creates a visual rhythm in my work. I strive to create multi-faceted artworks that venture beyond the decorative and delve into the realm of symbolism and personal significance.

CUSTOM ORDERS

I am happy to work with clients to create a piece that is meaningful and personalized. Typical lead time is 30-60 days, depending on the size and complexity. Get in touch via email or call (231) 755-7606.

DONATIONS

We recognize the need for charities and non-profits to raise funds. As small-business owners ourselves, we have developed some guidelines to continue helping and create a symbiotic relationship between our gallery as the donor, the non profit and the consumer.

SILENT AUCTIONS

Instead of donating to silent auctions we prefer to host several shopping events during the year in which a portion of the sales will be donated to a non-profit organization. If you would like your organization to be considered for a shopping event donation, please contact us.

NON PROFITS

If you are donating to a non profit and would like to purchase an item for donation we will offer a discounted price on your purchase. Documentation is required.
