This year we have two fantastic exhibits planned. The first is A Celebration Of Dickens In Pictures to mark the bicentennial of Charles Dickens that will run from August 25 – October 31 at the Yonkers Riverfront Library Gallery. In addition to the exhibit, I’ve organized two Day Of Dickens events, September 13th that will include the artists’ reception, and October 13th. Both friends of CBIG and our members will present artist demonstrations, craft sessions, a discussion panel and talks with Dickens experts, performance readings by The Friends Of Dickens, picture book story hours and a book signing and sale of published works by participants. During the exhibit run, check the library for additional related Dickens offerings. All events are free and open to the public, ages 3 and up, great for the whole family.

Our second exhibit ends a fantastic year and begins a new one. Mother Goose Re-Invented will include both traditional takes on Mother Goose rhymes and stories as well as twisted versions like the fractured fairytales that have been so popular in recent years. This show runs from December 6, 2012 – January 16, 2013 at the Flinn Gallery located in the Greenwich Public Library.
