Call To Traditionally Published Children's Book Authors And Illustrators

CREATING A PICTURE BOOK -- National Literacy Month Exhibit
Arts Center East (ACE), a regional arts center in Vernon, Connecticut with beautiful gallery space, easy access off I-84 and ample free parking is hosting an exhibit, tentatively scheduled for mid-September – mid-October 2016, that will focus on the thought and work that go into creating a picture book. The exhibit will display and compare the process from sketches or dummies and manuscript drafts to final versions. ACE is calling for a variety of materials from published illustrators and authors (no self-published artists and authors please):
       Matted and framed original art from a book
·         Framed prints of original art
·         Framed facsimiles/copies of dummy spreads
·         Framed (copied) sections of early drafts
·         A copy of the printed book to be handled by visitors

Authors and illustrators will have opportunities to sell their own stock of books, and to give a talk, a workshop/activity, or a reading of their book. Illustrators may sell their originals and/or prints.

Please note: ACE is a relatively new organization, with a limited budget. Participants are responsible for framing, matting, insuring and transporting their materials. For more information, please contact:  Joan Sonnanburg, Executive Director at / (860) 871-8222. Please indicate the type, size and number of your pieces when you respond.

NOTE: This event is not limited to Connecticut authors. Just keep in mind that participants must cover their own insurance and shipping costs.
