the "MATH=FUN!" Illustration Show...
We had a wonderful Opening Day, October 23.
Walls were repainted...as usual; art collected, and the New limited edition Book...called: "VISUAL LEARNING",( a Timeline from Cave Art through Illuminated Manuscripts, The Printing Press, Book manufacturing, Electronic communications, innovations in Teaching with Visual Aids, and the great hurrah of Murphy's MATHSTART books)... is now here! From 1 to 3 PM, Stuart and renowned Children's Book critic and biographer, Barbara Elleman, gave a stimulating presentation at the Hamilton-Wenham Library...and signed their books. At 4, we all congregated at the Gallery for Wines, fruits, and goodies, in the perfect wished-for warm weather so our newly pebble-paved outdoors was useful to overflow crowds. Popular illustrator, Steve Kellogg attended, and we talked about having a STEVE KELLOGG exhibition in 2012! Lots of reunions, especially from Many RISD ALUMNI, and warm greetings from friends, families, our Regular Gallery Goers, and happy purchasers of Art and Books. Many of us capped off the evening with dinner at the Tea House, where lovely speeches were made. Here are some pictures of the Day, thanks to our constant photographer, my Intern from Montserrat, Waka Tokuno. Thanks also to my helper, Adam Ziskie, at the bar...recent MCA grad whose first children's book will be coming out in Feb '12!!, and to Corrine Reid, a current Senior at MCA, for her invaluable help on Photoshop.
