Cosette Swart, 4-year-old artist

Cosette Swart, 4-year-old artistThis week, Cosette Swart, age 4, possibly the youngest member of Canada’s art community is holding her first gallery showing in her hometown of Calgary.  Compared to Jackson Pollack, her pieces sell for hundreds of dollars, and go faster than she can create them. The three-day gallery exhibit consists of 20 of her colourful works. This event, hosted in partnership with World Vision, gives Canadians a glimpse of some of her new works along with paintings that generated much discussion earlier this year, showing how this young prodigy was changing the world one brush stroke at a time.

 

Members of the public are invited to the free exhibit being held June 25-June 27 daily 10 a.m.-6p.m. at Manning Centre,  514 11 Ave SW, Calgary. “I’m nervous and excited to lead people around showing them my paintings because I like being a leader.  I want other people to please help the poor people.” – Cosette Swart, 4-year-old artist
