Arts preview: The Mixed Six: 'Us'

Jim Fischer

The Mixed Six is a group of middle and early high school girls who have been exploring photography with the aid of volunteer Jennifer Hinderer at Franklinton's Gladden House. The resulting work highlights the development of their creativity and individual expression and offers a look at how the arts can provide a voice to young people. "Every picture in the exhibition has been selected, mounted, arranged and named by the girls," Hinderer said. "It is important for all of us to facilitate the spark of creativity within children," gallery owner Alicia Vanderelli said.
