curating “the ART of illustration”
In 2018, Giertz Gallery at Parkland College hosted a special group show of 10 contemporary U.S. and illustrators known for their innovative work, personal style, and varying methods of creating their originals from paintbrush and gouache through digital manipulation. The exhibition also included an additional lecture and hands-on workshop taught by illustrator Ed Binkley.
I selected these artists for their strong conceptual imagery, outstanding craftsmanship, and unique visual language. These artists became ambassadors representing the current state of contemporary illustration in the U.S. and beyond (view the Exhibition Catalog).
