Books on the Charles Opening Reception

April 13, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

“Books on the Charles” celebrates the work of artists who have created illustrations for picture books by award-winning children’s book publisher Charlesbridge Publishing. For 25 years, this Watertown, MA-based independent publisher of children’s fiction and non-fiction has been committed to their mission: to inform and fascinate. Over those years, “Charlesbridge has built a reputation for books with engaging, accurate text and bold, detailed illustrations.” Offering a highly attentive, collaborative team, Charlesbridge has become a “destination publisher for authors and illustrators alike.”

This special exhibit features fifteen New England-area artists who have created illustrations for Charlesbridge Publishing. The original works in the “Books on the Charles” exhibit display a wide range of artistic techniques and visual storyteling styles ranging from whimsical pen and ink line drawings to three-dimensional collages to delicate impressionistic watercolors to bold and realistic acrylic paintings to textured linocuts — with each page displayed reflecting the artist’s unique approach to best conveying the text of a picture book.

  • Rob Bolster
