Nancy Ekholm Burkert: The Art of Illustration

January 31 - March 30, 2003
East Gallery

From James and the Giant Peach (1961) to Valentine & Orson (1989), Nancy Ekholm Burkert’s extraordinary body of work exemplifies the fine art of illustration. Her masterfully drafted and painstakingly researched images explore such universal themes as the search for love and respect for the natural world. Highlights of the exhibition include the exploration of Burkert’s artistic process, from preliminary drawings to her use of a rich variety of source materials.
