Image. Word. Design: Exploring Picture Book Illustration in Atlantic Canada

July 9 – August 23


This exhibition presents a selection of work by

four artists working in picture book illustration in

Atlantic Canada: Molly Lamb Bobak (NB),

Brenda Jones (PE), Darka Erdelji (NL), and

Leonard Paul (NS). The works selected

demonstrate the changes in illustration over 30

years, from hand-drawn to digital, from picture

book to graphic novel. The installation invites the

viewers to explore the process of design and the

relationship between word and image at various

stages of book production.

Made possible with support from the Thomas

  1. H.Raddall Symposium Fund, the exhibition is

presented in conjunction with the 9th Raddall

Symposium, which focuses on child, youth, and

place in Atlantic Canadian Literature.

The exhibit is co-curated by Drs. Laurie Dalton & Andrea Schwenke Wyile.


Opening: July 9, 7pm. Living Artists in attendance with readings by Sheree Fitch, Deirdre Kessler & Sophie Bérubé.
