PINEDALE – Imagine being 6 years old, or 9, or 13 – and seeing your creations displayed in a real gallery where people came to admire and perhaps even buy your artwork?

At last week’s artist reception, many Pinedale and some Big Piney kids who participated in Mae Orm’s weekly afterschool art club from November through May were pleased and thrilled to show off their various styles of paintings, stitching, glass mosaics, ceramics – even Raku-fired pottery.

Orm, teacher and owner of Pinedale Art & Crafts on Pine Street, worked with Mystery Print Gallery owner David Klarén to display about 185 of the students’ artworks for show and sale – in the Intuition 3 Youth Art Exhibit 3. Her elementary and middle school students range in age from 6 to 14 and worked through busy schedules and social distancing to explore their creative sides.

Intuition 3 is hanging through July 3 at Mystery Print Gallery, 221 S. Sublette Ave. Hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 1-6 p.m.
