SOUTHBRIDGE — Artwork created by Grow School students has been on display during the month of February at Sturbridge Coffee Roasters Café.

The school has two locations, a middle through high school in Dudley and an elementary school in Southbridge.

"One of the teachers, Diana Palmer, at the Grow School, thought it would be a great idea for her students," said John Polakowski, owner of the café. "The kids haven't come here to see the work. It would be tough and confusing for them. It would be tough to get them all here as well."

Although John is very welcoming of artists, it is becoming more and more popular to display at the café and is booked until August. Better-known Southbridge artists Jean Murphy and Palmer herself have had their work displayed at the café.

"It's for anyone who wants to come here and display their work," said Judy Rosioli, John's sister. "Usually on Saturdays, the artist will have a reception in the afternoon."
