R. Michelson Galleries - 20th Annual Children's Illustration Show

On Sunday, Steve and I went to the R. Michelson Galleries in Northhampton, MA for the 20th Annual Children's Illustration Show. The R. Michelson Galleries is a beautiful place and the show features incredible children's art from some of the top illustrators. We got to be in the same company of some wonderful people in the childrens book field. Jane Yolen, Norton Juster, Barry Moser, Leslea Newman, Mo Willems, Jarrett J. Krosoczka, Mordicai Gerstien, Richard Michelson, Jane Dyer, and Anna Alter to name a few. They were also auctioning some original children's art for Reader to Reader, a public charity dedicated to bringing books, free of charge, to needy schools and public libraries across the United States. The Children's Illustration Show will be hanging until January 31, 2010 and it's definitely worth the trip! We got to explore downtown Northhampton a bit too. What a cool creative community it is there!
