We’re so excited to share with you previews this week in anticipation of the upcoming exhibition, Works Cited, opening this Friday, April 11 from 6 – 9pm. Up first is the artwork of husband and wife team, Apak, whose work for this show is inspired by the intimacy of story time. Look closely and the details of this beautiful scene evoke the peacefulness surrounding a time well spent with a good book.
Next up is Chris RWK’s Where the Wild Things Are inspired work. About the work he says, “I don’t remember a lot of books from when I was a kid. I do remember comics and cartoons. One book that does and will always stick out in my mind is Maurice Sendak’s ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. I’m sure this book meant a lot to a lot of people, but I will always feel like it’s my story. It has such amazing illustrations. I remember years later seeing the cartoon version on PBS and I was hooked again. The book would also pop up throughout my life as if it was meant to be there. Still I feel like Max wanting to get away.”
