“Picture a Story”
Original artwork for and from children’s books by Priscilla Alpaugh, Chris Beatrice, Sarah S. Brannen, and Ioana Hobai
On view October 4–November 11, 2023
Reception on October 21, 3–5pm.
6 Bridges Gallery is pleased to present “Picture a Story,” an exhibition of art for and from children’s books. The original artwork featured is from published or soon-to-be published children’s picture books, along with some personal pieces. The published books will also be on display.
The show will include work by Priscilla Alpaugh, illustrator of Space Mice; video game designer and award-winning illustrator Chris Beatrice; Sarah S. Brannen, illustrator of two dozen books including the ALA Sibert Honor book Summertime Sleepers and the multi-award-winning Feathers: Not Just For Flying; and Ioana Hobai, illustrator of A Whale of a Mistake and Lena’s Slippers.
Viewers will also gain insight into how the artists create their work. Displays will give a glimpse into what goes into creating a children’s book, from manuscript to publication. Brannen and Hobai use traditional media, while Alpaugh uses a combination of traditional and digital and Beatrice’s work is exclusively digital.
The artists will sign books at a reception on October 21, 3–5pm. Children and adults of all ages are welcome. For more information, please visit https://6bridges.gallery.
