Meet the Artist Series - Melissa Sweet

November 5, 2006
12:30 - 2:30 pm
Free with Museum Admission

(Formerly Bagels and Books)
A love of words and a love of color (especially red) have led to many fine children’s books by this award-winning illustrator. Sweet’s style is one of whimsical watercolors often enhanced by collage art. Hear her thoughts on design, research, and experimentation – what she considers most exciting about making children’s books.
Feel free to come at noon and purchase a bite to eat in the Café before attending the presentation at 12:30 pm. A book signing will follow the presentation. Those who attend will receive a 10% discount in the Museum Shop (Members 20%) on the day of the session.

First Fridays @ The Carle

November 3, 2006
4:00 - 7:00 pm

"...Happy Hour for the whole family." (Amherst Bulletin)
Taking a cue from the Museum's popular Member PJ parties, which have been cited by families as the perfect bedtime transition for little ones, First Fridays @ The Carle invites all visitors to head to the Museum after school/work, grab a quick and casual bite to eat (pizza!) in the Museum's Café, enjoy a Storytime in the Reading Library, drop by the Galleries, take in a short film in the Auditorium, and create a masterpiece in the Art Studio . . . all before bedtime!

The program runs from 4:00 to 7:00 pm on the first Friday of each month.

Made possible by The Bank of Western Massachusetts
