Before I go into our show, I just want to mention what a lovely art museum the Haggin Museum in Stockton, California is!!!! They have many galleries with very beautiful art - some old master type, some victorian California history type, and galleries of special shows, like ours. One of the special shows that I enjoyed very much was the Fairy Tale Art - Illustrations from Children's Books. I saw some amazing and beautiful original illustrations that were submitted to publishers for books. I'll have to google them and see if they are still in print - they would be lovely to add to my small collection of children's literature books.
Back to our show - It was a beautiful show and many talented artists. I am soooo inspired! I saw several of my teachers there - two of which had entered gorgeous paintings and won awards - Kim Lordier and Terri Ford - and it was fun visiting with them. I also saw my friend, Kathryn Hall, and I am sooooo proud of her - she was awarded Signature Status!
Here are some pictures from the event:
