Podcast: What’s Up Bainbridge:
December’s Art at the Library features Aesop’s Fables: Illustrations by Lynnette Sandbloom and Susan Wiersema
Susan Wiersema and Lynnette Sandbloom will present an art show in the meeting room of the Bainbridge branch of the Kitsap Regional Library. Their show, entitled Aesop‘s Fables, will open as part of the community‘s First Friday Art Walk on Friday, December 1st.
Knowing the two artists were preparing for a show, a friend suggested they pursue a theme of animals with stories. Because Susan‘s husband had given her a copy of Aesop‘s Fables for Christmas a few years earlier, she suggested that as a theme for the library show, and Lynette agreed to the challenge.
Susan and Lynnette, who met while working at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts, are both interested in illustrating children‘s books, and have shown together at the library before. But their styles and approaches to their work are surprisingly different: listen here to learn more about their respective processes and this exciting upcoming exhibit.
Aesop‘s Fables, by Susan Wiersema and Lynnette Sandbloom, opens Friday, Dec 1st @ 5 PM and will continue throughout the month.
