I am happy to announce that two original fabric relief illustrations from Pocketful of Posies are included in the exhibit, Told and Retold: Picture Book Artists from Studio Goodwin Sturges at the Ryan Education Center at the Art Institute of Chicago. The show opens on Saturday and will be up for 5 months from May 12 – October 28, 2012.
My contributions to the show are two double page spreads, the one of Humpty Dumpty, Peter Piper and Two little dicky birds and the street scene with Pat-a-Cake, Cobbler, cobbler , mend my shoe and Polly, put the kettle on. The exhibit features sketches and finished artwork by: Holly Berry, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Christine Davenier, Bob Kolar, Salley Mavor, Daniel Miyares, Eric Puybaret, and Sebastia Serra. Our methods and styles are vasty different from one another and we are all represented by the children’s book agency, Studio Goodwin Sturges. Plans are in the works to have the artists do a special program at the museum and I’m hoping to come! I’ll post it on my events page as soon as I get a firm date.
