“Book on the Charles” in Belmont through 17 May

The Belmont Galley of Art is featuring an exhibit of work by local children’s-book illustrator for the local children’s-book publisher Charlesbridge.

The Boston Globe reports:
“Books on the Charles – 25 years of Charlesbridge Picture Book Illustrators,” which [Rebecca] Richards cocurated along with Watertown artist Leslie Evans, celebrates 15 New England-based picture book artists who have created art for Charlesbridge Books, a children’s book publisher located in Watertown.

“I’ve always wanted to showcase original works from children’s books in a gallery setting, so people could admire the work for the fine art that it is,” Richards said. “I think this exhibit brings back that sense of fun and wonder we had as children visiting a world of imagination created by picture book illustrators.”
Among the artists featured are Alan Witschonke of Natick and Wayne Geehan of Acton. There will be an artists’ reception and book-signing on the afternoon of 13 April, and the exhibit will be up through 17 May.
