ALBIE’S FIRST WORD Part of Society of Illustrators’ Annual Children’s Book Art Exhibit

ALBIE'S FIRST WORD at the Museum of American Illustration's Society of Illustrators Best Picture Book Art Exhibit 2014

Congratulations, Wynne Evans! I was thrilled to learn last week that original art from ALBIE’S FIRST WORD was chosen to be part of the Museum of American Illustration’s annual exhibit, The Original Art, highlighting the best picture book art of 2014, as chosen by a panel of children’s book illustration experts. (Somebody pinch me. Seriously!)

As the Society of Illustrators’ website describes:

The Original Art is an annual exhibit created to showcase illustrations from the year’s best children’s books published in the U.S. For editors and art directors, it’s an inspiration and a treasure trove of talent to draw upon. For art students, it’s a marvelous opportunity to examine—up close—the work of the best in the field. And for the public, it’s a chance to appreciate the enormous range of creativity in children’s books and to see the printed pages alongside the original paintings, drawings, prints, and collages they represent.

Founded by painter, art director, and artists’ representative Dilys Evans, The Original Art was first exhibited in 1979 at the Master Eagle Gallery in New York City. On display was the work of a wide variety of artists, some well-known and well-loved, some newcomers to the field. The show was an instant success, even receiving a proclamation of appreciation from the mayor’s office, and it has been popular ever since.

In 1989, The Original Art found a permanent home at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in New York City. It also became a juried event, with a committee of art directors, editors,publishers and illustrators selecting the best books from among hundreds of submissions and awarding Gold and Silver medals to the top pieces.

After the exhibit closes in New York, select pieces travel to galleries, museums, and exhibit halls across the country for a year. At the end of that time, the art is returned to its creators, and the books are donated by the Society to children’s charities.

The exhibit is on display from October 22 through December 20, 2014.

I am not sure if we’ll be in NYC before December 20. I hope so, but just in case, I was fortunate that friendly author/illustrator Matt Tavares (with whom I will be appearing with at an author event on November 15) attended the exhibit opening and was kind enough to snap a picture of ALBIE art. The Society of Illustrators chose one of my favorite panels. What a coincidence! I love how Wynne gets across Albie’s talent and mystery in the house of cards scene. I think it really works to drive home the line, “How did you do that, Albie?” (Can I just add here that I had nothing at all to do with this? Albie’s art is pure Wynne under the guidance of art director extraordinaire, Lee Wade. I didn’t see any of these panels until just a few months ago!)

To learn more about the amazing Wynne Evans, you can visit his Facebook page. Wynne’s art has been shown all over the word and he also created a beautiful series of murals for the famous “21 Club” restaurant in Manhattan. I love the way he brought Albie to life! Congratulations, Wynne!

Book News: Starred Kirkus Review for ALBIE’S FIRST WORD

kirkus snap2Pub Date: October 28 (Day 59 of the 100 day countdown!)

Some books news that I am happy to share…

ALBIE’S FIRST WORD received a starred review from Kirkus! Follow the link to read: I especially love this sentence — “More than a distinctive introduction to Albert Einstein, this book promotes both understanding of difference and scientific curiosity.” — because this is exactly what we were striving for. I feel great knowing that it really did translate on the page as we intended!

In other book news in this end-of-August edition, I am excited to now have a teacher’s guide for Albie written by my sister Suzanne (educator extraordinaire).

More soon!
