Check out this brand new, super splendid exhibition at the Riverbank arts centre in Newbridge. It's called The Illustrators, is curated by the UK Children's laureate, Gruffalo creator, and general kidlit megastar Julia Donaldson, and it does exactly what it says on the tin.
"This fantastic exhibition curated by author Julia Donaldson featuring over 50 original artworks by illustrators Axel Scheffler, Emily Gravett and Nick Sharratt, to name but a few! This is your chance to see The Gruffalo, Stickman and Zog as never before, alongside many other wonderful pieces created by the artists who have collaborated with Julia on her best-selling picturebooks over the past two decades... A complementary programme of family events will also run throughout April, including a double-bill screening of the award winning animated short films The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child animated short films (featuring Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, and John Hurt) and puppet shows by master puppeteer Martin Cahill, bringing some of Julia Donaldson’s most popular titles to life."
