"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." -Aristotle
A few of TCAG's star member artists gathered alongside art appreciators, parents, collectors, and more to launch Exhibition No. 1 this past Sunday.
The tour begins with resident artist Jimi Oni, and two other featured artists across the room. The audience either uses a self-guided tour of the exhibition or gallery staff walk guests through the collection. The interactive self-guided tour features youtube videos, instagram reels, and Q&A blogs about TCAG’s 3 featured artists.
As guests head to the second floor they are greeted by an incredible selection of hyper realistic portraits with fascinating titles, which leaves a person wanting to know more. Each piece on the second floor includes an interactive experience as well. The audience loads a profile on their phone about each piece, including videos, pictures, and descriptions from the artist about the process of making that particular artwork.
Exhibition No. 1 leaves its audience full to the brim with insight into the creative process of some of the world’s youngest artists. Some of this process is fun, bright, and lighthearted; other elements of the member artists’ process include navigating important and heavy information or life circumstances. A person leaves the gallery with new insight into what imagination creates within a child’s mind— the inward significance.
Exhibition No. 1 is open to the public until Saturday, 24, September, 2022. Email email@example.com to book a viewing. Digital catalogs can be requested via email as well.
