Do you see what I see?

A Fine Art Experience for Children & Everyone Else

This show is for you—to inspire you to see art in your own way.  To share what you see.  To ask the people around you what they see.  When we share our experience with others, we are connected. We form a community

Maybe something at this show will excite you. You will go home and keep thinking of it. That thought, can be called a spark and it means your creative fire has been lit.  Keep the fire alive and continue to think, talk and draw about what you have seen.  You will feel more a part of everything if you do.

My son, Thatcher Gray was four when I was invited to attend this residency geared towards creating work for children. I felt an urgency in communicating what I had learned about chemical and plastic pollution because of the challenge they present to the next generation. Works created during the residency are viewed here. We were asked to provide an interactive element for the exhibition, and the suggestion launched the project into becoming a platform for an international response to chemical and plastic pollution.
