Every day we look at illustrations in magazines, on book covers, and printed on all types of retail items, but seeing the original artwork for them in living color reveals the art, the process and the personality of the artist behind the image. I’m proud to be a co-founder of the Bucks County Illustrators Society, and very pleased to recommend to you our group exhibit, which is opening this Friday, October 3 at the bucolic Barn Studio Gallery on Gronendahl Farm in Doylestown.
Our goal at BCIS has always been to promote the art and business of illustration and give illustrators an opportunity to connect with other professionals in the field, and to date I think we’ve been very successful. This exhibit, curated by the Barn Studio Gallery’s Kim Gronendahl, showcases the original paintings and drawings of 14 of our members, some of whom are quite well-known:
I will have a dozen pieces in the show as well, but I’m more than eager to view the originals by my colleagues in illustration – to examine them up close and get the backstory of the art and process from the artists themselves at the opening reception.
Please join us Friday evening for the art and complimentary refreshments if you can! Gronendahl Farm is a beautiful venue for this show, it’s the home of the late Anita Gronendahl who was a master silkscreen artist. The show opens Friday from 6 to 9 PM and continues October 4, 5, 11 and 12 from 1 to 6 PM, or by appointment. The gallery is at 4783 Landisville Road, Doylestown, 18902.
