The opening night reception will be held at during the Village October ArtWalk, Friday Oct 4h 6-9:30 p.m. at Bonni Bakes Gallery.


Friends Of The Village, a Village-based group of art supporters, is proud to present this show, which offers a rare glimpse into the inner world of young children, and the organizers say that the bold strokes and vibrant colors used by these amazing 4 & 5-year-old artists are very reminiscent of Joan Miro.
