Lael Dalal, emerging artist
I love this hand colored photograph taken by one of my former students, Lael. She has gone off to art school now and heading for big things I imagine!
She was in our "Emerging artists and their Mentors" exhibition last May with this piece and it sold almost immediately! Each year we do this for NH and ME and northern MA high school juniors and seniors. The work is stunning, sells well and allows young students to go through the prospectus/jury process of a gallery. Why do we do this? Because I would have liked that when I was in high school. Because I believe in young people's art. Because both children and young adults have made art that belongs on gallery walls and not just the refrigerator door! Come see what the newest, freshest, hip minds have to say this May 12, 2006 from 5:30 -7:30 at artstream!
The word for the day is ... shine ... like the sun, your fairy wand and the toes of your shoes!
