“WE TELL STORIES” EXHIBITION BRINGS TOGETHER WORK BY ARTISTS BEHIND BESTSELLING CHILDREN’S BOOKS

On View November 4 – December 17, 2014
Reception Tuesday, November 11, 6:00 – 8:00pm

School of Visual Arts presents “We Tell Stories,” an exhibition of work by more than 340 artists who graduated with an MFA in Illustration as Visual Essay in the 30 years since the degree was first offered. Curated by founding chair Marshall Arisman, “We Tell Stories” surveys the vitality and versatility of contemporary figurative artists through thousands of works: editorial art, children’s books, comics, graphic novels, animations, products, paintings and more. The exhibition will be on view November 4 through December 17 at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, New York City.

“If, in the past 30 years you bought a book because of its cover, thumbed through the illustrations in a magazine or newspaper, read a children’s book to your child, thought a graphic novel or comic would make a great movie, purchased an app for your iPhone or visited a gallery, you have seen the art of our alumni,” Arisman said.
“We Tell Stories” will include work by notable alumni including George Boorujy, Viktor Deak, Brian Pinkney, Brian Floca, Nathan Fox, John Hendrix, Olivier Kugler, Allison Moritsugu, J. Stephen Savage, Yuko Shimizu, Sara Varon, Sam Weber and Martin Wittfooth.

A highlight of the exhibition will be a children’s reading room—furnished and designed by alumni Sara Varon and Aya Kakeda—with more than 200 illustrated books by MFA Illustration alumni.

The SVA Chelsea Gallery, located at 601 West 26th Street between 10th and 11th avenues, is open Monday through Saturday, 10:00am to 6:00pm. It is fully accessible by wheelchair.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Legend of the Yokai @ House of Vans London

TMNT_LOTY_Honor_Yuko_Shimuzu

I’m not sure how this one passed us by! There’s less than a week to check it out. All new TMNT artwork from a number of amazing artists. The show is obviously to promote the new film, but it looks like they’ve done a stella job and what a fantastic looking location and gallery House of Vans is. Even if they didn’t have ninja turtle art on display I’d still want to check out the location. Did I mention they had the Foo Fighters there a few weeks ago!
