From Artist's to Child's Hand

Picture books are the first step in the child’s future reading habits. As adults we concentrate on the text and expect to read a fascinating story, but children are often more influenced by the pictures rather than the story itself. That is why I think that the quality of artworks in picture books is so important. Each book has the potential to be a “mini fine art exhibition” carefully curated by the author, publisher and the parent who chooses which book a child should see. But in this exhibition all those middlemen will be skipped and the art will go straight from artist’s hand to child’s hand. 

There will be opportunity to organise "story time" readings of the books and illustration workshops with children. Other ideas for animating the exhibition are welcome too.  

Looking for original illustrations from published books (hard copies or e-books) created in classic mediums such as painting, drawing, ink, collage etc. Interested? Email to submit. Deadline Monday 27 March 2017.

Curated by Rita Lazaro.


Logo challenge

This is my version of the logo for this exhibition. It would be great to have some other sketches illustrating the idea. If you like the challenge send your sketches and ideas my way. Rita at
