Painter And Poet: The Wonderful World Of Ashley Bryan

Friday, January 19, 2018, 6:00 PM - 1:00 AM

Ashely Bryan (American, born 1923) will be featured in a series of picture-book art exhibitions which examines his long career as an author and illustrator. The exhibition will include over 70 works of art from 20 of Bryan's books. Among these is a selection of paintings from Bryan's most recent title, Freedom Over Me, published by Simon & Schuster in September 2016. In addition to surveying Bryan's adaptations of poetry, folklore and spirituals, the exhibition will explore the artist's fascinating biography and the important role that family heritage plays in his work. Eight of Bryan's puppets, which are inspired by African art and composed of objects he finds on the small Maine Island where he lives, will accompany his book illustrations. The exhibition will also feature a biographical video produced by the High with footage of Bryan at his home and studio.
