Start With Art:
Our Celebrated Annual Exhibition For Children

April 2 – 27, 2014

Meet the artists and enjoy an original puppet show The Beanstalk by The Moth Orbit Object Theater at our opening reception: Sunday, April 6, 2 – 4:30 pm

Start with Art is an annual exhibition at the Seymour Art Gallery. This exciting exhibition, featuring 15 artists, aims to educate children in visual art and cultivate their love of art collecting. Established artists will exhibit artwork, offer advice for young artists, and share childhood memories about art-making.

We know some kids save up their allowance for this show, so artwork is priced in a kid-friendly range and is only available for purchase by kids 16 and younger. The purchasing and appreciation of art can be a very fulfilling experience, and this exhibition, displayed at “kids eye-view”, provides the opportunity for children to feel a sense of wonder and empowerment.

Participating Artists:
Wryly Anderson, Michael Binkley, The Insect Collective, Shima Itabashi, Sean Karemaker, Meghan Leeburn, Anne Love, Caitlin McDonagh, Robin Reid, Sarah Ronald, Donny Sparrow, Minori Takagi, Mary Anne Tateishi, Liane Varnam, Kate Whitehead
