Chrissy Zullo signs on August 27th from 5pm-8pm at Captain Blue Hen Comics in Newark, DE.
Less than a month from now, the largest-ever Dinotopia art exhibition will appear at the Delaware Art Museum in Wilmington. The show will be on view from February 6 – May 16, 2010.
Dinotopia: The Fantastical Art of James Gurney includes 60 of the major works from Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time (1992); Dinotopia: The World Beneath (1995); and Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara (2007), along with a some sketches and maquettes.
Saturday, February 6 will be Dinotopia Family Day with lots of hands-on and family friendly tours. I’ll give a digital lecture called “Fact and Fantasy: The Making of Dinotopia” at 1:00, with a booksigning afterward.
On Sunday, February 7, from 11:00-4:00, I’ll be offering a workshop on water-soluble colored pencils for teens and adults.
There will also be teachers’ workshops, homeschool programs, Saturday craft projects, a spring break art camp, a “Dino Design-O” poster project, and a press preview on February 4. I’ll also be visiting the Delaware College of Art and Design and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia during that second week of February.
The Delaware Art Museum is also the home of the largest display of originals by Howard Pyle, the dean of author/illustrators, and a formidable collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings.
