In 2001 three painters Katty McMurray, Kathryn Matthews and John Marshall collectively took on a studio in one of Brighton Beach’s Victorian seafront arches. Five years later after frequently exhibiting throughout the UK and internationally, the artists decided to transform their studio into the Two Kats and a Cow gallery.
The name Two Kats and a Cow was coined by the three artists, the ‘Two Kats’ referring to Katty McMurray and Kathryn Matthews and the ‘Cow’ referring to the work of John Marshall. To begin with the gallery was created as an ongoing exhibition space for the three artists whilst also showcasing selected work from the highly acclaimed silkscreen printers Artizan Editions.
In April 2014 the gallery re-opened under the directorship of the ‘Two Kats’ Katty McMurray and Kathryn Matthews, introducing a roster of new talent from some of the UK’s best jewellers, ceramicists and sculptors.
Over the years the gallery has become a key attraction on Brighton's ever evolving seafront and has been listed by The Independent as a ‘must see’ tourist destination. The Two Kats and a Cow gallery is now Brighton’s oldest independent fine arts gallery and has generated a list of collectors from around the world.
Two Kats and a Cow hosts an annual show, every April/May and additional events throughout the year. To find out more about the work please visit the artist’s about pages, for updates and events please subscribe to the mailing list below.
