Union County’s youngest artists display their creativity

Our current exhibit features artworks produced by students attending Hannah Caldwell, NJ. Their works take over the gallery, it becomes more like an installation than an exhibit! Walk into the gallery and every inch of space is covered by the colorful paintings, drawings, and collages of these students. From the quality and quantity of the artworks, you are very aware of Leslie Jenkins’ love of teaching art to children. In this day when school budgets are so ready to cut the arts to save a penny, it’s nice to see these children given the opportunity to be actively engaged in the visual arts at these schools.

On Sat May 10 I stepped into a world of wonder when I visited the gallery for Leslie Jenkins’ reception for the “Union’s Youngest Artists” exhibit. Every square inch of the gallery’s walls was covered with the creative output of these children. As the morning wore on, the little artists started arriving. Gleefully they pointed out their pieces, posed for pictures and ate cookies. We all had a wonderful time!

This is the 4th year that I’ve stopped by to view Leslie’s exhibit. Each year she has something new up her sleeve. This year was the inclusion of 3d glasses! Wow what a trip to look at the artwork through these lenses. The children also got a kick out how this added another “dimension” to their work.
