American artist Georgia O'Keefe (1887-1986) said,"I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn't say any other way---things I had no words for."
Art is an often-used medium at Laraway, providing opportunities for the children and youth we serve to "say things" with art, to express emotions and creativity. From the Art Room at our school to craft activities in our foster care and behavioral intervention programs, Laraway is ablaze in color.
A new exhibit in Laraway's Gallery Space is the work of our of our youth whose inclination to paint large, colorful flowers, reminds one of O'Keefe's work. This young person was first introduced to art when she was very young, by a family member who is an artist.
The exhibit is up until the end of February. For more information or to arrange a visit, please contact Katherine at Kstamper@Laraway.org or (802) 635-2805 x 106.
