I just got back from dropping off some work to be in a show at the Center for the Arts in Milford, CT. The show is called, "The Art of Children's Book Illustrators" and runs from Oct. 6-Nov. 14. Although I have had my art in shows before, this is the first time I will have my children's book art in a show. Very excited for the opening reception on Saturday, Oct. 11, 10-12. I am showing 4 pieces: 3 finishes and 1 process piece. They wanted to see some sketches and unfinished pieces to show the work behind the work.
I can now add matting, framing and hanging to my list of "skills I learned as an adult."
I enjoyed spending time with my dear RISD friends Sarita Rich and Marcela Staudenmaier who also have pieces in the show.
