December 21, 2017 – Opening January 6, 2018, with a reception 6 to 10 pm, “Lalley! Lalley! Lalley!” features the Lallley family who live in Northern Kentucky and both as a family and individually make incredible art. The exhibit closes February 3, 2018.
According to Brian Lalley, father and husband, “People will hopefully leave the show with a great view of what it is like to live in our crazy art household!”
The artists in the show include Brian Lalley, Sarah Lalley (mother), Gavin Timmerman (17), Sage Lalley (14), Matthew Thomas (13), Jackson Lalley (6), and Ryder Lalley (6).
Says Brian, “Sarah and I produce a lot of work together very cohesively. We always try to encourage our children to participate or try things if they seem interested. Together or separate, there are always things being produced in the house.”
This show was inspired by the Lalley’s six-year-old autistic son, Ryder. As artists themselves, Brian and Sarah are amazed at his vision of the world he lives in and the amount of work Ryder produces. That prolificity generated the whole concept for “Lalley!” and also allowed the Lalleys to include all five of their children, who all have their own things to express as well.
“Why not give them that chance?” asks Brian.
