Just as an author decides what would be the best point of view from which to tell a story, so too does an artist think about perspective. This exhibit shows the unique views that artists use to tell a story using distance and one, two and three-point perspectives.
Borders are often used to add a three-dimensional quality to the art. These borders are usually simply line drawings. The artist then extends some of the art across this line border giving the appearance of the art “popping off” the page.
“MOTHER GOOSE EXHIBIT”
This exhibit showcases books that contain just one Mother Goose rhyme, but have some “surprise” visitors hidden in the stories.
Woodcut, linocut, etching, collagraph, potato print and, newly added, silk screen are shown in this exhibit. You will be amazed by the time and effort these artists take to make their masterpieces.
