Cat Square Print of an Oil Painting by Arie Reinhardt Taylor.

There truly is a place called "Cat Square". Cat Square is a very small place that is down the road a piece from where we lived (Vale, NC in Catawba County). It got its name, some say, for the large amount of cats that was dumped there. The store in the painting is not there anymore. At one time, it was very popular place owned by a relative of Bob Saine, my brother-in-law. Cat Square was a place where the neighborhood men gathered to talk about their crops, politics, or religion. A large warehouse that was used to store fertilizer doubled for the Grand Old Opera. Folks gathered every Saturday night to make music and dance. Later a larger building was build near by and musicians from all over would come. Some Grand Old Opera players from Nashville. TN would come to play. I remember going to hear the Carter Family.

"Cat Square with Yellow Dress" is a print from one of Arie Reinhardt Taylor's paintings. 94 year old artist Arie Reinhardt Taylor is a 2nd generation artist and her art is well know throughout western North Carolina. She has painted 40 years out of her 94 years and over 1,000 paintings in oils and watercolor.

Artist: Arie Reinhardt Taylor
Arie Reinhardt Taylor was born in 1921 in Catawba County in North Carolina. Arie bases her work on scenes from her life in rural Catawba County in the 1920's and '30's. Her paintings provide a sense of nostalgia for any viewer regardless of whether or not they are familiar with the scene. People from an older generation are reminded of the way things used to be in "the old days", while younger generations learn what life was like before cell phones, computers, and video games. Arie is the daughter of Minnie Smith Reinhardt, who also was a well known artist.
