Febuary 2015 - Students of a local school

Pencils and Brushes

This month we will be featuring art made by students of the North Salem Nursery School. See the drawings of rainbows, animals, and families as depicted through the creative lens of young children. The drawings are bright, colorful, and have a jubilant air to them.


Next Month - Kindergarden Mondrian

These paintings were created based on the artwork done my Piet Mondrian. The Kindergarden students used horizontal, vertical, and diaginal lines to create shapes while learing about the three primary colors: red, yellow, and blue.

Bryan Lee Madden's Etch a Sketch Artwork

etch a sketch

Bryan Madden grew up in Purdys New York. He attended college in Plattsburgh where he discovered a talent for Etch A Sketch. His etches have achieved Internet fame and media attention and been featured on CBS News, CNBC, and in The Wall Street Journal.

He takes commissions of people, homes and businesses in addition to traveling the country to sketch portraits at weddings, corporate events and parties. All his art is preserved by removing the sand contained within (so as to prevent shaking/erasing) and he has shipped many across country including one hanging in Portland in The Children's Museum of Maine.

In the conference room
Historic Newspapers from North Salem
Compiled by the North Salem Historical Society 

From gossip, weddings, ads and obituaries to front page dramatic headlines, our latest display on old newspapers in the conference room of the Ruth Keeler Memorial Library offers a revealing  look at our past.  Take this historic tour of early newspapers starting in the 1880s and see the variety of papers and reporting styles that covered the stories of North Salem, Croton Falls, Purdys and Salem Center.

Newspapers Tell the Story in Words and Pictures will be up for approximately six months. 

Please let us know if you have copies of any old papers that we could  copy and add  to our collection.

Thank you and enjoy!
