Painter and Poet: The Wonderful World of Ashley Bryan

"I can't remember a time when I have not been drawing and painting. In kindergarten, when I learned the alphabet and then drew the pictures for each letter, it was a wonderful experience because the teacher said I had published a book when I reached the end and sewed it together. Because of the encouragement I received as a child, in school and at home, I continued doing those books. I don't know how much those experiences were actually behind what I'm doing now in a direct sense, but it was the spirit in which it was opened to me, that in which I really believed." ––Ashley Bryan


This exhibition is made possible in part by generous support from Antheneum Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing.
