hort poems or songs known as Nursery Rhymes and the longer form folk stories known as Fairy Tales both come from centuries old oral and literary traditions aimed at capturing the imagination of children. Sometimes joyful and silly -- sometimes dark -- they both conjure unique imagery and ideas in the minds of children and adults alike. In the juried exhibition Hey Diddle Diddle, artists nationwide were invited to submit work that depicts their interpretation of a chosen rhyme or tale. In 2015 the gallery hosted the first, regional Hey Diddle Diddle Juried show that attracted a fun array of magnificent artworks which inspired the current call to be open to artists across the U.S.
The work will be on view and available to purchase through July 28th during regular business hours Wednesdays through Fridays 1-5pm, Saturdays 1-4 pm, First and Third Fridays 3-8 pm and by appointment. The exhibit is juried by gallery owner Niza Knoll and Amy Norton.
