Children’s Picture Book in Art Gallery Window!

July RAL windowHappy Independence Day! Happy summer! For the month of July, my children’s picture book, Lonely Lola Ladybug, will be featured in the window of the RAL’s Studio Gallery, along with two framed original illustrations and three of my paintings! (Yup, that’s me in the reflection.) I have been an active member of the Rappahannock Art League and an exhibiting artist in the Studio Gallery since 2007. There are more of my paintings on display (and for sale) inside the Studio Gallery as well as many wonderful works by other local artists. Copies of Lonely Lola Ladybug are available year round in the gift shop.  If you’re in the neighborhood of 19 North Main Street, Kilmarnock, Virginia, stop by and also see the Small Works Exhibit July 1-31.

I am particularly proud about my book being in the gallery window because it represents a small victory for the art of children’s book illustration. Months ago, there was some discussion at the Gallery about this question, “Is featuring a children’s picture book appropriate for an Art Gallery?” I would be interested to know what you think.
