IMAGINATION! THE WORLD OF CHILDREN’S BOOK ILLUSTRATORS
September 1-30, 2009
with a Gallery Night Reception & Book Signing September 17 5:00pm-9:00pm
Explore the world of children books and the enchanting art that inspires children to love reading. Often thought of as a secondary art form, this exhibit of original art in all media illuminates the dynamic fine art created to illustrate children’s books including oil paintings, acrylic, watercolor, printmaking, drawing, collage, construction and fabric art. The exhibit will give a cross section of work by these artists showing their individual range and also the process from beginning sketches to final art and published books. Book signing will take place on Gallery Night September 17 from 5:00-9:00 p.m.
Readings from the featured books September 17 6:30 p.m. and September 19 at 10:00 a.m.
