Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CHICAGO - Nov 03, 2017 - Takohl Gallery, located at 110 North Peoria Street in Chicago’s West Loop, will feature wildly imaginative artwork created by children ages 2 to 12 from Friday, Nov. 17, 2017 through Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018. Takohl Gallery’s “Young Artists in Motion” art exhibition explores the uninhibited wonder and magic of childhood through the lens of super-sized holographic-like original drawings and paintings, such as “Before DeKooning”, a painting by 2-and-a-half-year-old Eero from Chicago and “The Tree of Life”, a drawing by 8-year-old Nika from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
“My vision is to enrich these young artists’ work by utilizing modern processes to take their imagery to the next dimension,” says Takohl Gallery Owner Tammy Kohl.
Kohl knew by age four her destiny was in art. That’s why she decided to team up with artist and photographer Susan Aurinko to curate this first-of-its-kind art exhibit featuring child artists. Moreover, Kohl and Aurinko are committed to mentoring the featured artists, sharing their love for art to inspire and support others’ artistic pursuits.
