The Earlville Awesome House invites you to join us in celebrating 21 years of KidsART, an extravaganza of original and amazing artwork created by elementary school students from around Central New York.  The artwork of nearly 300 budding artists jumps off the walls with an energy that captures the feeling that spring has arrived!  Since the first KidsART exhibit in 1993, the EOH has provided over 4,000 children an opportunity to share their artistic visions with friends, family, other students, and the community at large in a professional gallery setting.

An opening reception for all participants, their guests, EOH members, and the community at large will be held on Saturday, February 1st, from Noon to 3 pm in the West Gallery.  Refreshments will be served, including food that kids love, and admission is free.

Each year nearly 300 children and families attend the opening of this fun event that introduces children to the professional gallery setting.  Over 700 are expected to attend the exhibit.

The multi-media show will feature artwork from local elementary schools, including Hamilton Central; Sherburne-Earlville; Burton Street in Cazenovia; Stockbridge Valley; Morrisville-Eaton; Perry Brown, Gibson Primary, and Gibson Middle in Norwich and New Life Christian in Hamilton.

The Earlville Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street in Earlville.  The KidsART exhibit will run through April 5.  EOH Galleries are open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm Tuesday through Friday, and on Saturdays from Noon to 3 pm.

EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and through the generosity of EOH members.
