Current Exhibition at Bergstrom-Mahler Museum

Link to April 13 Appleton Post-Crescent article, "Art from children's literature takes the spotlight at Bergstrom-Mahler".

Art meets literature at the Bergstrom-Mahler Museum's current exhibition, which showcases the bold and graphic renderings of Los Angeles-based illustrator and author Gerald McDermott.

Creator of more than 25 books and films, McDermott's use of color, stylized figures and abstract motifs are said to combine ancient imagery with contemporary design. The exhibit displays his illustrations in their grandest form.

Running in conjunction with the second annual Fox Cities Book Festival, "Myth & Magic" is a touring exhibition of 54 of McDermott's works organized from a collection of the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature. It offers a career overview of the Caldecott award-winning illustrator's work.
