The Gallery Talk on Tuesday, May 27th turned out to be a most enjoyable and informative...and important for the artists...evening. Two of the North High Seniors, Latasha O'Neal and Shane Mattox, attended. Latasha's family attended, as did Ms. Dege and Ms. Berger, both art teachers at North. Kai Jones, from Plymouth Avenue Art Studio, and a friend of his dropped in.

After each artist took some time to walk us through thoughts about specific pieces, we enjoyed a freewheeling conversation about what art is, what art does, why one does it and how it feels to do it. Both young artist held their own, learned some things about themselves, and left with the thanks and appreciation of everyone.
