Art Exhibit, Morris Graves Museum, Eureka, CA
I am pleased to have two of my pieces of original art for my books, A Polar Bear's World and A Walrus' World on display at the Morris Graves Museum in Eureka, California. As part of the bi-annual Humboldt County Children’s Author & Illustrator Festival, they are among select
works from winning illustrators demonstrating the
processes of illustration in children’s literature.
The exhibit opened in September and groups of school children visited and learned about the art from docents. I thank Lucy Quinby of the Festival Committee and Jemima Harr, Executive Director and Curator of the Morris Graves Museum for doing such a good job of mounting the exhibit and working with the children. It was so nice to have the books displayed alongside the art so viewers could see where the illustrations fit in the books. The exhibit will be up until October 29, 2013.
