Folks: Picture Book Art of James Ransome will feature over 50 paintings created by the artist, who is known for chronicling African-American history, traditions and experiences. The exhibit, which runs from February 8th – February 28th, will also include two of Ransome’s dummy books, as well as four preliminary tracing paper drawings and color studies, enabling visitors to follow the progression of an illustrated book from concept to final paintings. Admission to the library’s Lumen Winter Gallery is free, and is open to the public during regular library hours.
