Tapestry – The Art Of Rogers Elementary School
In June of 2012, Rogers Elementary School closed its doors, sending students out for the last time. As a tribute to their experiences at the school, the students and teachers worked with Arts Council teaching artists to create tapestries. These wall hangings hold the visual art of all of the students and some of the teachers from Rogers. Each class chose a different theme to base their art on. Represented are letters, numbers, seasons, word art, landscapes, portraits and more.
Under the instruction of teaching artists Renee Pye, Tara Eastman and Kellyn Baron, the Rogers Elementary community and PTA came together to literally illustrate what they loved most about their school.
The Wright Gallery is located on the 2nd Floor of the Arts Council For Chautauqua County offices at 116 East Third Street in Jamestown, NY.
The Wright Gallery is open to the public between 10am and 4pm, Mondays through Fridays. Off-schedule viewings may be arranged by calling 716-664-2465, extension 227.
