Sonoma County Illustrators Exhibit

PICTURE BOOK illustrators usually take a back seat--and second billing--to the authors that write children's books. But the Sebastopol Library is turning the tables on this trend with its current exhibition of illustrations by three prominent Sonoma County illustrators.

On display will be Santa Rosa resident Karen Hanke's clever computer illustrations from Matthew Gollub's brand-new The Jazz Fly. But there will also be works by two other artists who have illustrated more than a hundred books between them.

Sebastopol resident Teri Sloat will be represented by illustrations from Barbara Winslow's The Hungry Giant of the Tundra and Dance on a Seal Skin. The exhibit also features a sample of work by Stacey Schuett of Sonoma, including the author-illustrator's drawings from Somewhere in the World Right Now; illustrations from Outside the Window by Anna Egan Smucker; and the lush Purple Mountain Majesties by Barbara Younger.

The gorgeous artworks--stunning to behold even outside the context of the stories they illustrate--are displayed along with copies of each book, forming a kind of before-and-after demonstration of the illustrator's craft.

The exhibition runs through April 22 at the library, 7140 Bodega Ave., Sebastopol. For more information, call 823-7691.

From the April 13-19, 2000 issue of the Sonoma County Independent.
