Eliza, age 7
I am so excited for my niece Eliza, she had this painting of hers selected as part of an international art exhibit. When she found out she made it, and that it would be hanging until July, she said, " Why can't they just keep mine hanging up all the time?" I told her that is actually quite a long time for an exhibit to hang, and they will have other art to exhibit. She said, "Well, why can't they just find a different place to hang the other stuff and keep mine there?" I sure love Eliza. I love her painting too.
"The Gospel Blesses My Life" is an exhibit featuring art by children, ages 5-12, from 42 countries around the world. Using the theme "How the Gospel of Jesus Christ has Blessed My Life," the young artists used various media to create artwork about different gospel subjects.
Of more than 1,700 entries submitted from around the world, 250 were selected for display. Most of the remaining entries can be viewed on digital screens in rotation as part of the exhibit. This artwork will also be featured on the Friend magazine's website at www.friend.lds.org and in the "Our Creative Friends" section of the March 2011 issue of the Friend.
"The Gospel Blesses My Life" will continue through July 4.
