NORWAY — The Rowe School student art show opened on April 14 at the Norway Memorial Library. The display features the work of more than 400 students from kindergarten through sixth grade. The artwork will remain on display until Tuesday, May 17. The public is invited to view the student art show any time the library is open.

The Norway Memorial Library collaborated with Rowe School art teacher Eva Kozun to show that art is a vital aspect of the students’ education. Children’s Librarian Anna Gordon says, “This art show isn’t just for the students who created the art, it is for every child who comes into the library and is inspired to make something themselves.”

Two of the displays clearly highlight the connection between art and literature. “Dr. Seuss Meets Eric Carle” and “Head to Toe” present student interpretations of the stories of Eric Carle and Dr. Seuss. These paintings show a deep understanding of the meaning of Eric Carle’s stories and the style of Dr. Seuss’ illustrations. One of the cutest and funniest collections is titled “Turkey Dressing Anyone?” These mixed media drawings created by 4th graders highlight what a well-dressed turkey would look like.

The Norway Memorial Library is open Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, contact the Norway Memorial Library Children’s Room at 743-5309, ext. 4.
