YOUNG AT ART 3, Off the Wall Gallery at Dirty Frank’s
Looking for an art show that’s a breath of fresh air? Perhaps one where the artists’ love of creativity shines through — no agenda, just passion? LOOK NO FARTHER.
THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 18, 1 to 4 PM, we will gather to welcome 22 very young artists to OFF THE WALL. They are the forces behind YOUNG AT ART 3, the newest edition of the occasional juried show we inaugurated in 2013.
Our Opening Reception will put a kid-centric twist on our normal light hors d’oeuvres — pizza, fruit salad and juice boxes, plus mini-cupcakes from our friends and neighbors at SWEET BOX — and you’ll have the chance to meet more than half the artists.
Our creatives run the gamut in age from 3-4 years old — AUGUST KILLE, STEFAN NAU and ORLA VECCHIO — up to 11 and 12 — including JAYDEN O’HALLORAN, MARY MINEI and YOUNG AT ART veterans KYLIE GROVE, MO HINCHEY-MODGLIN, SKYLAR WILLENBORG and EMI and NOA TRAVALIA.
The Travalia girls also remind us that this time around we’re showcasing sibling synergy with five such sets: EMI and NOA, ISE and SAJ EVANS MCNALLAN, DARIUS and STEFAN NAU, A.J. and SADIE PENNINGTON and CORMAC and ORLA VECCHIO.
Across their work — ranging from paintings and drawings in oil, acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil, charcoal and oil stick, to photography and collage to August’s whimsical sculpture, which takes flight in our 3D case — you witness SHEER JOY.
It buoys our firm belief that each and every person is BORN TO CREATE. The love of art and art-making is genuinely innate. Life erodes this instinct rather than reinforce it — unless we lift up an artist as early as possible.
So come join us as much to elevate as to celebrate. And if your party includes other kids, more power. Yes, normally you would be carded — but not for these three hours and a little bit more (unless you order alcohol). Let’s take in great art and have fun!
See you Sunday,
