Fifth grader gets Third Ward art show

Who is the youngest artist to ever receive a solo exhibition in the Historic Third Ward? It could very well be Claire Hanel, a 10-year-old fifth grader at Hartford Avenue University School.

A show devoted to Claire's work is hanging in the Verduras Tea House and Cafe, a vegetarian restaurant that occupies about 1,800 square feet at the front of the Artasia Gallery & Museum on Broadway. An opening reception will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the restaurant.

Verduras owner Jennifer Nowicki rotates art exhibitions about eight times a year. Facebook connected her with the young artist.

Claire's mom posted some of her daughter's artwork on Facebook last summer, and it was seen by Nowicki's mom, who thought it was exceptional. The idea for an exhibition was born.

The Claire Hanel show will be on display on Verduras' walls until April 15.
