Can artistic talent be spotted at a very young age? Does the world benefit from fresh perspectives and spontaneity of artistic expression? Because we believe that the answer is a resounding yes!, our non-profit organization has dedicated itself to displaying and preserving the creations of even our youngest artists.

 

The exhibition presents works of art created by current and former students of the Little Owl School of Arts in Eugene.

 

Our featured artists, Anna Laptova, Lizka Vaintrob, and Phillip Bindeman, will graduate from high school this spring. All three have been involved in the visual arts since the age of three or four. Their works have won numerous awards at local art competitions. The works on view provide an opportunity to trace the development of their individual styles and interests.
