Behind the Art of a Picture Book

Join us for a closing reception for the solo-show, “Behind the Art of a Picture Book” by award winning children’s book illustrator, and Factory alumni, Laura Knorr. Reception will take place in the Center for Creativity Gallery on the 2nd floor of the Pajama Factory. Live music will be provided by Kevin Badolato, and light refreshments will be available.

This exhibition will showcase a large body of Laura’s illustrative work in acrylic, oil glazes, colored pencil, while also delineating the creative process behind the illustrating of a picture book from manuscript, sketches, finalized artwork, to the book itself.

Born in Pennsylvania, Laura graduated from the Ringling School of Art & Design—after which her travels took her to Oregon, Michigan and then finally landing in Georgia. Her Illustrations include award-winning children’s books and paintings for corporations and institutions. In addition to numerous in-school and public programs, Laura has taught at The Creative Circus in Atlanta. She currently resides in Berwick, PA with Charlie T. Dog.
