An exhibit from the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts promoting the May 12 Dogwood Fine Arts Festival visit by Judith Barrowman will be on display at Patrick Hamilton Middle School through April 30.
Based on original tomb paintings, works in this exhibit create an intimate connection between experiences of life more than 3,000 years ago and today.
Barrowman will teach two classes on animal symbolism during her day in Dowagiac.
Patrick Hamilton teachers can use her work to touch on history, geography, culture and civilization, as well as art, furthering Dogwood's mission to be educational as well as entertaining.
In her picture poetry brook, "Animal Symbolism in Ancient Egyptian Painting," she captures children's imaginations by introducing them to snippets of Egyptian mythology.
Barrowman's solo exhibitions have been shown throughout Michigan in museums, libraries, schools and institutes and in Egypt and the United Kingdom, including Glasgow University, the Egyptian embassy in London, the Edinburgh Festival and galleries in Scotland.
