StoryArt: Children’s Book Exhibition Opening Reception

October 3, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Eight Massachusetts children’s book illustrators share their work in StoryArt, an exhibition of original book illustration: Priscilla Alpaugh, Sarah S. Brannen, Shawn Fields, Wayne Geehan, Brian Lies, Julia Miner, Ilse Plume, and Nicole Tagdell.

These award-winning illustrators each have found their own way to tell stories with their art, introducing children and adults to a magical world of art, history, science, nature, fantasy, and stories of all kinds. This is a rare opportunity to see book art up close, learn more about the illustration process, and meet the creators. Exhibitors will be available to autograph copies of their books at the October 3 opening reception and panel discussion. See website for additional free workshops and hands-on activities for all ages, and related programs presented in association with the Concord Festival of Authors.
