Children's Book Illustrators Exhibit

Submitted By Christine Bender

The Sun Gallery is proud to announce the 23rd Annual Children's Book Illustrators Exhibition running from February 15 to April 7. The exhibition features 12 well known illustrators from across the United States and focuses on artwork closely linked to the text of the publications. Many of the illustrators are also the authors of the books, and the books range from publications suitable for very young children, for example, Ashley Wolf's "Baby bear Sees Blue," to books aimed at older children and teenagers such as the bilingual book "Side by Side/Lado a Lado" by Monica Brown and illustrated by Joe Cepeda describing the story of Dolores Huerta and Cesar Chavez as they fought for farmworkers rights in the 1960s.

Illustrators and authors featured in the exhibition are: Joe Cepeda, "Lado y Lado" author Monica Brown, Tom Leonard "Here is the African Savannah" and "Here is Antartica," author Madelaine Dunphy, Christy Hale "The East West House," Ashley Wolf "Baby Bear Sees Blue," Felicia Hoshino "Sora and the Cloud," Susan Guevera "Wild Women of the Wild West," author Jonah Winter, Elisa Kleven "The Friendship Wish," Julia Cairns "A Full Moon is Rising," author Marilyn Singer, Andrea Burris "Tater and Tot," Jessica Lanan "Good Fortune in a Wrapping Cloth," author Joan Schoettle, Lin Wang "Shining Star: The Anna May Wong Story," author Paula Yoo, Mike Dutton "Donovan's Big Day," and author Leslea Newman.
