Addie and the Arts

Assemblywoman Addie Russell of the 118th District today brightened our northcountry a little.

She opened her office wall space in the Dulles State Office building to some budding artists.
Six elementary students from LaFargeville elementary school had their works hung
in a gallery for everyone to enjoy. These are creative, colorful and just as wonderfully joyful as all good art should be.

Everyone is invited in to enjoy the pictures. Addie's office is in suite 210 on the second floor and you don't need an invitation or a special reason to stop by. You are always welcome. Unfortunately, we live in an age when it might be dangerous for elementary school age kids to have their full names publically displayed. Therefore, these gems just have first names attached.

The pictures will hang for about six weeks and then be returned to their creators.
If you are an art teacher who would like your students to participate in this project too Addie would enjoy having a few submissions from your elementary school artists.

Just call her District Office at 786-0284 and she will make the space available.
