POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y.-- An outpouring of more than 200 artworks by local nursery, elementary and intermediate school students will be displayed in the exhibition, “A Celebration of Children’s Art,” at Vassar College’s 31st annual John Iyoya Children’s Art Show.

The exhibition will be on view from Sunday, March 13, through Friday, March 18, in the James W. Palmer Gallery of the Main Building. The exhibit is free and open to the public, as is a March 13 reception in the gallery beginning at 2 p.m.

Sponsored by the college’s Department of Education, the show highlights young children’s interest in the visual arts and encourages their use of the arts to express themselves. The exhibit’s namesake, John Iyoya, was a Vassar student known for his creativity and love of children.

The 2016 show will include artwork by students from Overlook Primary School, Noxon Road Elementary School, G.W. Krieger Elementary School, Warring Magnet Academy of Science and Technology, Morse Young Child Magnet School, Hagan Elementary School, Nassau Elementary School, Lagrange Middle School, Todd Middle School and Wimpfheimer Nursery School at Vassar College.

The Palmer Gallery is open Monday - Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., but calling ahead to the Office of Campus Activities is recommended. The gallery is closed on Sunday.

For detailed information about accessibility to specific campus facilities, search for “campus accessibility information” on the Vassar homepage www.vassar.edu .

The Palmer Gallery is at 124 Raymond Ave., 711, Poughkeepsie.
