Exhibiting at Kidcasso

Hello friends,

Well, it has been a very busy week so far! After my ramblings yesterday, I spent the day gathering up artwork, hunting down frames, and polishing up some pieces I had created over the years. Here is the result:

This gallery wall is in one of my favorite places in town - an art studio devoted mainly to children, called Kidcasso. The owner, Laura-Marie Small, opened this wonderful space five years ago, after starting the business in her apartment! The studio is a bright, colorful  hubbub of creative activity, where kids come for classes, learn about the masters and translate what they've learned into bright, colorful artwork! In the off-hours, the space is used for Pilates classes, adult painting classes, and our own Arts Collaborative meetings once a month.

Outside, a bright sign bids a creative welcome,

and here is the OPEN flag I was commissioned to make.

The front window indicates that there is creativity inside,

and this warm painting by the owner in the entryway exemplifies the caring, nurturing spirit of the place.

If you love art and kids, take a look at this website and you'll see some wonderful photos!

I love having my work on display here, and I'm grateful for the opportunity! 

Hope you are having a creative day!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Many hearty clapping hands and yahoos for you, Judy. What an amazing place you've found yourself a part of. Your work is truly beautiful, each piece a work of heart, and your open flag must make people want to hop out of their cars and rush in the door. Lucky local kids to have a place like that. Wish I did when I was growing up! Come to think of it, I'd like a place like that to grow in right now. Good work, dear one.

Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! Congrats to you, Judy!

You have no reason to feel "less" at all. Being uniquely yourself, being different, is hard sometimes, but that's what makes each of us so special. Your art is wonderful! And that open flag is perfect!
