The Visions & Voices of Children's Book Illustrators Show

There is a children's illustration gallery show this month right 'next door' to me in Newtonville, MA. Some wonderful illustrators are involved!! I will look forward to seeing this show!

The Visions & Voices of Children's Book Illustrators

The New Art Center in Newton is proud to present an exhibition of children’s book illustrations as part of our 30th anniversary year of special programs. The Center envisions an exhibit that is exciting and engaging for children and adults alike.
Recognizing that children’s book illustrations are an art form, a range of artistic styles and techniques will be on exhibit. Subjects and themes represented will include folk tales, animals, adventure and fantasy, identity and history, friendship and a celebration of the every day.
