A Show, A Show, An Illo Show!

 "When Bows Were Big"

I am participating, along with 10 other illustrators from across Iowa, in a SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) exhibit at the Gilded Pear Gallery in Cedar Rapids. 

The opening is this Saturday, September 29th from 4-6:30 pm and will run through November 10th. 

The opening night will have all of us there displaying not only our gallery pieces, but many of us will have our portfolios and published work on display at that time as well. If you have kids who are at all interested in a career in illustration, this is a great opportunity for them to see a varied range of styles and applications, so please bring them along!

The illustrators who are exhibiting are:

Jeni Reeves
Claudia McGehee
Dorothia Rohner
Natalie Groves
Patty McGrane Harms
Jane Metcalf
Becky Wirfs
Peggy Gratton
Erin Taylor
Candace Camling
and me

If you can make a day of it, I'd like to suggest a visit to the great New Bo neighborhood and a visit to New Bo books (the new Prairie Lights affiliate in Cedar Rapids). Also, take in the fantastic Alphonse Mucha exhibit at the newly renovated Czech Museum

If you can't make it to Cedar Rapids this Saturday, it would be wonderful if you could visit our show and the restored Cedar Rapids neighborhood some other time.

Again, thank you for your support of the Arts!
