Art by Jim Arnosky of South Ryegate, VT
“Two years ago, I began a series of paintings apart from the paintings I have done in my books. It is something I have wanted to do for some time — paint larger than book size, on canvas for gallery hanging, and paint some of the many places my wife Deanna and I have traveled to research the animals and habitats depicted in my 100+ books.
This show of larger, more expansive paintings has given me the opportunity to paint the beautiful places and creatures found in them purely for their own sake, apart from the confines of the text in a book.”
Stop by Alumni Hall to view this exhibition of works by Jim Arnosky, celebrated children’s book author and illustrator! Self-taught in art and science, he has written and illustrated over one hundred books and illustrated books written by other authors, always about outdoor subjects.
With his wife Deanna as his field partner, the couple have researched, photographed and videotaped the animals they have found in their travels. All of Jim’s books have begun in the pages of his field journals, which he keeps going to this day.
