Check back frequently as we will be showcasing our fabulous action items for the 2011 Hope Gala. We don’t want you to miss out on your favorite item.
We are excited to have Steve Childs, in collaboration with the North Carolina School of the Arts, and 6 local JDRF Kids create our inaugural one of a kind piece of art just for this evening. We hope that the Children’s Project will grow from year to year and truly become a highlight of each Gala. The Triad is such a hot bed for the arts, that we are certain this project will become a favorite within the community.
Steve Childs is best known for his figurative paintings of dancers and portraits. He has painted the human form and figure for over thirty years. He has been featured in International Artist, The Portrait Signature, Dance Magazine, and featured three times in American Artist. He has been interviewed by numerous other publications including USA Today, Art of the West and The Artist's Magazine. His most recent award was from the Salon International Exhibition.
Six children from the Triad JDRF chapter spent time with Steve creating and interpreting this magnificent abstract canvas. We are honored that the NC School of the Arts cinematography professor John LeBlanc and some of his students documented this project from start to finish.
