Picasso Was Right! Events

Pablo Picasso famously said, "It took me a lifetime to learn to paint like a child." And he was right!
Children are the world’s best artists. So, art teachers, parents, and libraries around the County of Sullivan are doing their part by hosting events where kids get to show off their stuff.
Then, on August 3, we’re planning an exhibition of the work at the Delaware Valley Art Alliance’s Krause Recital Hall, so young people can have the experience of an opening night.
Artists up to age 16 can have their work included in the August 3 Grand Opening Reception by attending feeder events listed below, or submitting their work directly.
May 20, 2024
For info or to register for a feeder event for young artists at the Narrowsburg branch 5-6 PM on May 20, use this link:
June 15, 2024
There is also a feeder event at the Sunshine Free Library in Eldred, NY. Artist Claudine Luchsinger and Nick Roes will provide inspiration/direction and art supplies at 1 PM on June 15. To register or for more info visit or call the Library at 845-557-6258.
August 3, 2024
The exhibit in August at the DVAA will feature the work of all the young artists, as well as their bios. It will also feature a display of Picasso's most childlike prints. It will include an opening reception, and a pop-up weekend exhibit.
School groups, scout groups, libraries, and art galleries are encouraged to inspire young artists by hosting their own painting party.

Participating poets include Norma Bernstock, Nancy Dymond, Sally Quinn Hendee, Anna Gossett Johnson, Lisa Locurto, Mort Malkin, Johnny Robinson, Nick Roes, and Nicole Slevin.

It all started with a highly unusual hobby: taking selfies in abandoned buidings.  But it's grown into "Elegance in Abandonment" a body of work that has taken Christine all across the world.  It includes photos as well as poetry.

Don't miss this chance to meet Christine and see her work up close.
