welcome to the online silent auction for signs and symbols: artists & allies II. All proceeds from children's artwork will be donated to the Sugar Hill Children's Museum of Art & Storytelling.
There is a legend in the life of Joan Miro, the Spanish painter whose quest for simplicity in art lead to celebrated style oft mistaken for naïve. A woman is said to have come up to him one day and said, looking upon one of his paintings, “My child could do that.” He responded, “Yes, ma’am, but could you?”
This year, for the second annual edition of artists & allies II, the 'allies' include not only artists who support or are otherwise aligned with the gallery’s mission but also their talented and inspiring children. Indeed, to acknowledge the importance that ‘community’ and ‘family’ have meant to the creation and perseverance of signs and symbols, as well as to celebrate the tradition of value of a child’s imagination and its unparalleled openness to the beauty of the universe, these young artists have been invited to contribute exciting and fresh new ideas. For it takes a village, not only to raise a child, but also to grow a gallery.
