Last night, I attended an art exhibit of “Young Masters” sponsored by the Dallas Museum of Art. http://www.dma.org/art/exhibitions/young-masters-2014
My husband, a high school engineering teacher, was invited by one of his students who is one of the artists chosen to exhibit.
I was astounded at the creativity and technique and imagination and expression of the work of fifty high school age artists.
I was deeply moved by the emotion and passion of their work.
There was painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, mixed media. Each work had a thoughtful individual artist statement.
There is no limit to the individuality in all of us, as shown by these fifty young artists.
Their talents have been developed by their individual desires bringing them into contact with wonderful teachers, support from parents providing them with materials and time and lessons.
Let there be more art!
Let us welcome the creativity and individuality of all of us, young and old, in all the ways we can possibly express ourselves.
