From the Sun Gallery:
Our 22nd Annual Childrens Book Illustrators Exhibit opens February 9, and features nine artists this year as well as the work of art students from Chabot College. There will be an artist and book signing reception on Saturday, March 19th from 1:00pm - 4:00pm, where you will have the opportunity to meet many of the illustrators and have them sign books you might want to purchase.
