Opening Reception: The 108th Annual Exhibition: "Children's Book Illustrations: Visual Storytelling"


Maier Museum of Art - 5 p.m.

For the first time in 108 years, Randolph College's Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art will focus on children’s book illustration. The art of several illustrators, including the current 2019 Caldecott Medal winner, Sophie Blackall, will offer a magical time for visitors of all ages. This fall, the Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College presents an exhibition of visual storytelling, inspired by the imaginations of the young, and young-at-heart. Curated by Kathy Muehlemann, chair of Randolph College's art department and professor of art, the 108th Annual Exhibition features illustrations by Vanessa Brantley-Newton, Larry Day, Douglas Florian and others. Also included is the retrospective "Finding Sophie Blackall." Blackall’s whimsical, yet thoughtfully realistic artwork, invokes nostalgia at its purest. She skillfully employs Chinese ink and watercolor to record some of life’s greatest moments, both victorious and sorrowful. The 108th Annual Exhibition is generously sponsored by Mary Gray Shockey ’69.
