UNION, NJ – An exhibit of the work of “Union's Youngest Artists” is currently on display at the Les Malamut Art Gallery at the Union Public Library.
The artwork by Hannah Caldwell School kindergartners through fourth graders, includes a large Jackson Pollock-inspired piece by second graders, best viewed with the 3D glasses provided at the gallery.
“We are extremely fortunate to still have art in the Union school district,” said museum curator and Hannah Caldwell teacher Leslie Jenkins.
“If you come to the library to pick up a book or a DVD, or stop in to access the internet on our computer system,” said Committeeman Manuel Figueiredo, “stop down to the lower floor and see some of the wonderful work kindergarten through fourth grade is doing right here in our township.”
Describing his art piece, first grader Ethan said, “it’s a lion flower. Some of them are different colors. One shoots fire balls.”
“I was so excited that my three dimensional art got posted here in the library and if you put the 3D glasses on, you’ll see something very cool,” said second grader Tawiah.
“Union’s Youngest Artist” show will be at the Les Malamut Art Gallery until May 20.
