ARTFUL ALPHABETS: FIVE PICTURE BOOK ARTISTS
June 11–November 6, 2011
Picture Book Gallery
Ryan Education Center
Illustrator Mordicai Gerstein sees sculptural letters formed out of creatures. Chris Raschka portrays a man and his cat in an alphabet adventure. Mary Thelen’s colorful pictures of shapes and lines illustrate a toe-tapping text, while Stacy Innerst explores the world of music from A to Z in paintings on board and tin. Hand-colored woodblock prints by Mary Azarian explore the garden theme and expand vocabulary with word and picture. All of these artists prove that are as many artful ways to illustrate the ABCs as there are ways to see the world.
