TNCJ’s fall exhibition, Visual Voyage: Exploring the Media and Styles of Award Winning Children’s Book Illustrators will present more than 50 works of art by renowned picture book artists. Four basic elements make a picture book—a format unique to children’s literature—distinctive: story, pictures, style, and format. Pictures and style are featured in this exhibit. Pictures, of course, are self-explanatory, but they are never just lines or brush strokes on a page. The illustrator’s style lies in how he or she approaches his/her craft. Styles can be realistic, surrealist, impressionist, expressionist or naïve. The artist’s means of expression is also reflected in the choice of medium. The media choices an artist makes often determine whether a picture book works or falls flat. Watercolors, oils, acrylics, collage, or photographs are a few ways in which illustrators bring stories to life. The artists featured in the exhibit are known internationally and represent the highest caliber of children’s book illustrators reflected in the number of whom have been awarded Caldecott Medals and Honor Medals; Coretta Scott King Medals and Honor Medals, Pura Belpré Medals and Honor Medals, plus a myriad of other awards too numerous to list. There is even one alumnus of The College of New Jersey—Coretta Scott King and Caldecott Honor medalist E. B. Lewis. The curator of the exhibition is Dr. Deborah Thompson, Associate Professor of Elementary and Early Childhood Education at TCNJ. The exhibition will be accompanied by public lectures and demonstrations, as well as a fully illustrated catalogue with a scholarly essay by Dr. Barbara Kiefer, the Charlotte S. Huck Professor of Children's Literature at Ohio State University.
