Page Gallery, located at 23 Bay View Street in Camden, will host an art exhibition featuring works by children of all ages Friday, January 15, through February 19.

Children are invited to pick up free panels at the gallery with a subject prompt to make a painting of their favorite place. Finished paintings will hang at the gallery for the duration of the show. In the gallery, a connect-the-dots image will be projected on a pad of paper, giving visitors a chance to make a drawing to bring home. A collaborative loom project will be set up for visitors to add rows of weaving. High school students from Watershed School in Camden will be completing a collaborative mural project.

The youth art will not be sold. Page Gallery will donate 10% of proceeds from the sales of original paintings by Chris van Dusen and other gallery artists during the exhibition period to AIO Food and Energy Assistance in Rockland.

Page Gallery considers itself to be family friendly; in a news release, manager Kirsten Surbey said, “We love sharing the gallery with appreciators of all ages and often find the most interesting and honest reactions come from children.”
