Yes, the Pocketful of Posies traveling exhibit is coming to Fresno, California and so am I! 25 original embroidered illustrations from my picture book Pocketful of Posies, 10 pieces from my series of baby board books and George’s Chair will all be on display March 18 – May 24, 2013 at the Arne Nixon Center for the Study of Children’s Literature, Henry Madden Library at Fresno State.
All are invited to the opening reception on Friday, March 22 at 6:00 pm. Rob and I will be traveling to California for the event and I will be giving a talk at 7:00 pm. In addition, I’ll be at Petunia’s Place, also in Fresno, for a book signing on Saturday, March 23rd from 11:00 – 1:00. We’re really looking forward to coming to California and hope to meet some of you on Friday or Saturday.
My artwork is included in the dual exhibition, “Golden Threads: Journey through the Picture Book,” in Fresno State’s Madden Library. Featured will be “Golden Legacy: 65 Years of Golden Books,” sixty pieces of original artwork from Little Golden Books, and “Pocketful of Posies: The Worlds of Salley Mavor” (co-hosted by the Fresno FiberArts Guild). I’m happy that the show will be up for more than 2 months, giving people plenty of time to come and see it.
So cute and original. I guess there’s no way to put something like this into production?
Glad you like it. And it IS in production, in the picture book “Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes”: https://www.etsy.com/listing/102035867/autographed-picture-book-and-poster
I’m going! I’m going! But not until April…
Sorry to miss meeting you, Salley…
It’s nice to hear that you’ll be traveling up to the show!
Have so much fun…your work is delightful!
Welcome back to CA, Salley and Rob! The Central Valley should be green and carpeted with blossoming trees in your honor. XO
I will be there this Friday, March 22, but it will be in the morning due to other commitments. Sorry I won’t be able to meet you but I’ll have some of your books with me “just in case” 🙂
