The Henry Sheldon Museum presents an exhibit of 20 esteemed contemporary Vermont children’s book authors/artists. Their paintings, illustrations, and photographs, as well as books that feature their artworks will be scattered throughout the museum to be enjoyed by visiting children and adults. Author readings, presentations, panel discussions, and hands-on activities are being planned throughout the run of the exhibit.

Included in the exhibit are works by Jim Arnosky, Mary Azarian, Harry Bliss, Janet Hayward Burnham, Jason Chin, Eileen Christelow, John and Jennifer Churchman, Sarah Dillard, Deirdre Gill, Thacher Hurd, Woody Jackson, Warren Kimble, Peter Lourie, Tracey Campbell Pearson, Jan Reynolds, Phoebe Stone, Ashley Wolff, Tami Crupi Zeman, Bruce Zeman, Jr.

The many authors and artists vary in age, background, experience, and style, but all have chosen to live in Vermont, finding inspiration from the state’s landscape, agriculture, village life, and friendly neighbors. They also draw inspiration from their own childhood memories, as well as more recent experiences with their children and grandchildren. A child’s imagination is limitless and these artists/authors perfectly capture the whimsy of possibility. Their colorful and creative works will captivate visitors of all ages.
