Etienne Delessert and a Free Trip to the Carle!

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

This Sunday, April 17th, we are so excited to have world renowned author and artist Etienne Delessert back at The Carle for a day full of presentations, gallery tours and book signings. As you may already know, Delessert’s artwork is currently on exhibition in our East Gallery in What A Circus! The Art of Etienne Delessert. This Sunday at 12:00 pm in our Auditorium, Etienne Delessert will share his thoughts, both practical and philosophical, on drawing, painting, storytelling, and the world of picture books in a presentation titled Themes, Theories, and the Art of the Picture Book. Delessert will talk about the how and why of the images he creates and the audiences for which they are intended and then at 2:00 pm guide a personal tour of his exhibition, followed by a book signing outside our Shop. You can take a look at all of Delessert’s books, including the show’s beautiful exhibition catalog, as well as postcards and posters in our Shop online.

To make it even easier for our far (but-not-too-far) away friends in New York City to attend, we are offering a FREE chartered bus from the city to our beautiful countryside in Amherst, MA. Not only is it a wonderful opportunity to escape the city and see some trees and cows and amazing artwork, but we’re also offering passengers free admission for the day to the museum. (We do ask for you to bring your own lunch). The bus leaves promptly at 8:00 am from Parsons The New School of Design at 66 5th Avenue and will return by 8:00 pm. The free bus and admission is sponsored generously by the Consulate General of Switzerland in New York.

It’s going to be a wonderful day at The Carle, wherever you may be joining us from, but if you’re in New York City and would like to catch a ride on the bus, make sure to call and reserve your seat by Friday, since space is limited.

For a wonderful interview with Etienne Delessert and images of his amazing and colorful artwork, visit Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. Hope to see you all Sunday!
