City of Imagination Showcases Kids’ Art

April Grossman, right, of Gulfport, admires a painting at an exhibit of art by neuro-diverse youngsters and young adults held Saturday, October 21 at the City of Imagination in Gulfport. Grossman said she was interested in the exhibit because she had an aunt with disabilities who was a gifted artist. “It’s a great way for people to express themselves,” she said. Represented at the exhibit were some 75 artists from around Pinellas County with autism, dyslexia, ADHD and other differences who paint in an abstract-expressionism style that stresses color, movement, texture and feelings. The artists are taught by Caroline Duvoe of Gulfport, herself a self-taught abstract expressionist and founder of Studio Duvoe.
