Submitted. The Abbotsford Arts Council announces its first show of 2014 at the Kariton Art Gallery: “The Best Most Fun Kids Art Show EVER!” featuring the artwork of students of 4Cats Arts Studio Abbotsford. The show will present a wide range of paintings by local youth, many of which are inspired by artists the children have studied, such as Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt, Claude Monet, Jackson Pollock, and more.
4Cats is a professional arts studio franchise where children ages 2-15 can grow their ability to see and think like an artist. The name 4Cats is inspired by the 4Cats Cafe in Barcelona, Spain, where Pablo Picasso went with artist, poet and philosopher friends to discuss art and life and make and show his art. At 4Cats, kids take inspiration from the great masters of art and create their own using professional art materials.
“The Best Most Fun Kids Art Show EVER!” will run from January 10 to February 4 at the Kariton Art Gallery, located in Mill Lake Park at 2387 Ware Street. The gallery’s hours are Tuesday to Friday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday to Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The artists will be present at an opening reception on Sunday, January 12, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Non-perishable food donations for the Abbotsford Food Bank will be accepted at the Kariton Art Gallery throughout the exhibition. For additional information, please contact the Abbotsford Arts Council by phone at (604) 852-9358, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit our website at abbotsfordartscouncil.org.
