Opening Reception: Illustration
Tuesday, August 9th, from 5 to 7PM
ILLUSTRATION is an exhibition featuring artwork by both Smithy Member Artists and invited Guest Artists.
For this exhibit Illustration is defined as the traditional, digital, and contemporary media exploration of the mode of storytelling. Illustration is a particular branch of art that arose centuries ago in the service of storytelling and the printed word. Early manuscripts and books needed visual images that were provided by artists. Today this work has grown into a mass market print and digital world of books, magazines, advertising, and online communication that is enormous. At the foundation though, still lies the work of the work of artist illustrators who create the images that serve to illustrate the stories we tell.
Please note that all food & drink must remain outside and masks are recommended but not required in the galleries.
