When you’re very small, having your art work hung on the fridge is a badge of honor. But in the back of every young mind, there comes the question, “Am I a good artist, or is she just hanging my work because she’s my mother?”
On to school. Many art teachers are tuned in to students with real talent and give encouragement along those lines. Maybe there’s a school art show, or maybe your work gets hung in the hallway. Still, every child who’s proud of their work and talents yearns for a bigger venue. But no “real” gallery hangs children’s drawings and paintings, right?
Until now. In January, the College Street Gallery will host its first-ever, all-ages Kids Art Show. Children’s art will be matted and hung in a real gallery with an opening reception
planned for Saturday, January 16th, from 2 to 5PM.
This is a great opportunity for kids, who enjoy drawing and painting, to show off their talents to the whole world (or a larger part of it.)
Participants should drop off up to 3 pieces of art on 81/2 x 11 paper (of which one will be selected), with a $10 check payable to College Street Gallery. The small fee will cover the cost of the gallery, refreshments for the opening, and publicity for this very awesome event.
Work can be submitted during regular hours: W – F, 5 to 9PM, or Saturday, from 2 to 8PM, or through the mail slot anytime. Don’t forget to include the artist’s name, age, titles and a parental name and email address. DEADLINE JANUARY 15th. Mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, or give owner Mike Mulley a call.
