Highlighting both the artwork of children and nationally-recognized artists, the exhibit including paintings by Sam Tchakalian, Sarah Klein, Tom Nakashima, Ken Hale, Tracey Adams, Al Carter, Judith Foosaner, and students from Forest Grove Elementary School in Pacific Grove, among others.
Originally, naive art was any form of visual art that reflected a fresh and innocent vision of the world and was created by a person who lacked or rejected traditional understanding in portraying those objects. The genre is now widely recognized and can include a range of mediums, styles and motifs – from child-like scribbles with classical references to the art and poetry of antiquity to pure abstraction in painting and drawing.
The exhibit can be seen Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 4:00pm, or by appointment, through November 26th, 2022.
