Stunning exhibition of childrens' book illustrations - not to be missed.
NEWS: Picture this…
To compliment the month long Richmond Literature Festival, a new exhibition opens at the Riverside Gallery on 10 November celebrating contemporary children’s book illustrations by a host of UK-based artists. Showcasing works from the vibrant and colourful to the surreal and dark, there are a plethora of paintings, prints and publications here to rouse the imagination.
Up-and-coming illustrators are exhibited alongside work by established artists such as Georgie Birkett; James Mayhew, author and illustrator of the celebrated ‘Katie’ books; and Jim Kay, 2012 winner of both the first Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medal prize double for ‘A Monster Calls’.
Cllr Pamela Fleming, Cabinet Member for Community, Business and Culture, said “Illustrations in children’s books form an integral part of our childhood. They influence how we see the world growing up, how our imaginations grow and how we interpret the books they accompany.
“With the power to inspire, terrify and awe, the new exhibition opening at the Riverside Gallery displays some of the best examples of children’s book illustrations from UK artists. Go along to the Riverside Gallery from 10 November and see it for yourself.”
The works for the exhibition, curated by Mark De Novellis, have been selected in partnership with the Lion and Unicorn Bookshop of 19 Kings Street, Richmond.
