A Place Where Art Education is Discussed and Explored!

February Family Day

For about six weeks now, Adrian Hatfield’s King of the Impossible exhibit has been on display in our Art League Gallery.  It’s an incredibly intriguing collection of artwork which, in the words of Hatfield, “examines the modes of visual communication developed within religion, science and fine art and the role they play in humanity’s attempt to understand itself and its place in the universe.”  Take this piece, entitled “KT and The Second Coming”:

Our adult audiences might spend a few minutes gazing upon this piece, questioning the meaning of humanity and its place in the universe, but we are pretty sure we know what our younger visitors see: DINOSAURS.

So this weekend, as we prepare to host our Family Day event, we are not going to overthink it.  We’re going to  leave the “meaning of humanity” to the grown-ups and take on Adrian Hatfield through the eyes of a child—by making dinosaur art.  Come by and bring the family as our veteran youth instructor, Miss Candie, leads a project of prehistoric proportions.
