The Original Art Show 2011

This October will mark the 31st year anniversary of the annual show, Original Art: Celebrating the Fine Art of Children’s Book Illustration. Founded by artist-agent Dilys Evans, this coveted exhibition showcases the best illustration produced from books carrying a 2011 publication date.

Selections were culled from 150 children’s books, which in turn were picked from 590 entries submitted nationwide. The works will be on display at the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators (128 East 63rd Street, New York, NY 10065), from October 26 through December 29, 2011.

Juried by illustrators, art directors, and editors, they also choose the winners of two Silver Medals and one Gold Medal. This year’s Gold Medal winner is Rosalyn Shanzer for Witches! The Absolutely True Tale of Disaster in Salem, (above left; National Geographic Society; publication date August 2011).

The Silver Medal winners are Kadir Nelson for Heart and Soul: The Story of America and African Americans (left; HarperCollinsPublishers / Balzer and Bray; and Lane Smith for Grandpa Green (below; Roaring Brook Press). Cover from "Grandpa Green"

A special Founder’s Award went to Stop Snoring, Bernard! by Zachariah Ohora (below; Henry Holt and Company Books for Young Readers).

This prestigious show is open free to the public to demonstrate the importance of books for children and the enormous range of creativity they represent. It’s a fabulous opportunity for students, artists, and industry professionals to experience the original art itself. And each work is archived permanently via the Society of Illustrators Annual.
