Charles’ dream of being featured in an art gallery came true this past week at Townley Gallery in Laguna Beach, CA. The owner, Shane Townely, had seen Charles’ work at Artexpo in New York earlier this year in mid-April and invited him to show his work at the “Gunstruction 101” exhibit. Like many adults, he was surprised with the quality of Charles’ work and his age. The Laguna Beach Coastline Pilot quoted Townley saying, “It could be what every kid in school is in fear of, that someone’s going to come with a gun to school,” Townley said. “So it has a lot to do with children and guns.” Visitors who had not seen Charles or his work before had similar reactions as Townley and were fascinated with his message and his accomplishment.
Charles is honored to be featured in this exhibit and thanks the entire Townley Gallery for all of their generosity and support. Located at 570 S Coast Hwy in Laguna Beach, Townley Gallery will be showing Charles’ work for the entire month of June. Visit their website for more details.
