Rabbitat at RISD ICONS exhibit

On Wednesday evening, we went to the opening of RISD ICONS: A Legacy of Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design. The show features the varied artwork of over 50 RISD alumni, including children’s book illustration, comics, editorial and advertising. My piece, Rabbitat, was nicely displayed next to fellow ’78 classmate, David Wiesners’s original painting from his most recent book, Art & Max. My former teacher, Judy Sue Goodwin-Sturges (pictured below) joined us for the festivities.

Special Offer to my blog readers: Buy a Rabbitat poster at my Etsy Shop and receive a free Felt Wee Folk Blossom Fairies poster. Just mention free fairies poster on your order.

The show is on display for a short time, through June 25th, at the Woods Gerry building on the RISD campus, 62 Prospect St., Providence, RI.

Rob and I joined Judy Sue and some old and new friends for dinner afterwards. I was delighted to meet Jamie Hogan (RISD ’80), an illustrator who teaches at the Maine College of Art. We hope to reconnect soon at MECA, where my son Ian is a painting student.

  1. How wonderful to be with fellow artists and classmates for this special event. And what an honor to you and your work- congratulations!

  2. You’re quick! I’m still sorting out a motherlode of impressions from ICON 7, which was off to a fantastic start meeting YOU! Hope you’ll visit my class at MECA this fall. Congratulations on the Rabbitat piece in the show, just lovely.
