    The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art will honor childhood creativity and the art of illustrated literature in the upcoming exhibition Now and Then: Contemporary Illustrators and their Childhood Art.

    Will you grow up to be an artist? Co-curators Grace Lin and Jarrett J. Krosoczka honor childhood creativity in the exhibition Now & Then, in which they display artists’ childhood drawings next to their published illustrations. The pairings inspire young visitors to make connections to their current creations—and future potential. In addition to Grace and Jarrett, the featured artists are Cece Bell, Nidhi Chanani, Jason Chin, Eric Fan and Terry Fan, Julie Flett, Jeff Kinney, Elisa Kleven, Barbara Lehman, Rafael López, Oge Mora, Juana Martinez-Neal, Raúl the Third, Shadra Strickland, Don Tate, Evan Turk, and Tillie Walden.

    This exhibit will be featured in The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art’s Central Gallery from December 14, 2019 through May 10, 2020. The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is located at 125 West Bay Road in Amherst, MA 01002. For more information visit carlemuseum.org.

    WOW at University of Arizona

    Join Worlds of Words for a reception for our current exhibit with special guests, award-winning illustrators, Juana Martinez-Neal and Molly Idle!

    How is art influenced by other people? The current exhibition at Worlds of Words, a curation of global children’s literature located at the University of Arizona, tries to answer this question. Housed in the Kathy G. Short studio, the professional relationship between two award-winning and Arizona-based author-illustrators, Juana Martinez-Neal and Molly Idle, is highlighted in a showcase of their original art and published works.

    The exhibit itself focuses on the core of this professional partnership, with the title: “Critique to Support & Stretch: A Conversation between Juana Martinez-Neal and Molly Idle.” Their relationship is self-described as one of equals, built on mutual respect and encouragement to explore new ideas. To this effect, the walls of the studio display an intermingling of framed original art from a variety of their projects, highlighting the influence of one artist on the other. The soft, comforting colored-pencil illustrations of Martinez-Neal’s work sits side-by-side with the bright hues and fairytale aesthetic of Idle’s portfolio.

    The exhibit can be visited at Worlds of Words, Room 453 in the College of Education of the University of Arizona -- 1430 E 2nd St, Tucson, AZ 85721.
