The Darien Library’s Art Gallery is hosting a new art exhibit, entitled “Seasons and Celebrations: Children’s Art from Around the World,” in the Library’s lower level through Jan. 11, 2012.
The installation brings 35 pieces of art to the gallery; each piece of holiday-themed art is created by a child between the ages of 7 and 15. The artists are located in more than a dozen countries around the world including Chile, Latvia, Russia, Japan, New Zealand and the United States.
The art is being provided by Creative Connections, a Norwalk-based non-profit international culture exchange that facilitates art-based exchanges throughout the world. It is being co-sponsored by PG Properties.
The new exhibit takes the place of the collection of abstract paintings of Linda George, which hung in the gallery between Oct. 3 and Nov. 9. As always, the exhibit is free.
