Screen-Shot-2014-05-27-at-1.32.19-PMAll the paintings that are in this show are the exact same size as they appear in my books. I didn’t always like doing animals, I used to prefer doing people in costumes, but being a children’s book illustrator, I had to learn to like doing animals. I’m still not good at dogs but eventually my husband and I acquired cats. I then really learned the psychology of a cat. The cat I really love, hence my two cat books Nini Here and There and The Cat & The Cook. I also love drawing pigs. Pigs are easy, you can dress them up or dress them down. Horses not so much.”

At the opening reception of “Rescue Me”, Anita hosted a “Meet and Greet” book signing with a large selection of her children’s books, including Caldecott Honor Winner, “Taking Care of Mama Rabbit”.

Guests really enjoyed speaking with her and having a personal message written in their Anita Lobel book.

“I have been illustrating and writing texts for picture books for children since 1965. Many of my books have been translated into several languages and published abroad.

The early pictures were usually black ink drawings. Laid on top of the drawing, on two or three separate illustration boards, an overlay of watercolor washes was prepared. At the printing press these overlays were translated into colors. Blended together this process, if cleverly manipulated, gave on the printed page from a combination of, for example, a green and red or yellow and blue printers inks, an illusion of almost, but not quite, full color. Even though my books from that era do not blaze in full color, my black and white pictures are always intricate. They and their accompanying overlays are often of real interest to collectors of graphic art created for books.

For the past 25 years or so, printing presses have become much more sophisticated. Books are now beautifully printed mostly in China or Japan. All of us in the picture book field have been liberated to indulge in full color painting. Thus I have accumulated an archive of real paintings from many books, which are truly collectable and displayable. These pictures are in demand. I have sold work to individual collectors and institutions in America as well as Japan. I have been included in group exhibitions, such as the annual exhibition of original picture book art at The Society of Illustrators in New York City, exhibitions organized by museums and educational institutions around the country, i.e., The Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Virginia: Myth, Magic and Mystery. One Hundred Years of American Children’s Book Illustration. I have had one person shows at Every Picture Tells a Story in Los Angeles, the Justin Schiller gallery in New York. In Japan my pictures have been included in several museum collections specializing in children’s book illustration. I have now decided to offer the original art from my picture books for sale.

When I was an art student I was interested in painting heroic murals. A complete reversal, a miniaturization of those visions, came to suit me better and it has served me well for many years.”

Artist Jeff Schneider’s take on the West brings in overlapping themes of nature and persona that question both the nature and possibility of unity.

“I consider these paintings randomly narrative. They work by association, making unlikely connections between different types of images, languages and signs. It is my intention to leave the viewer puzzled as to where and how meaning lies between relationships. To question the nature and possibility of unity through representational and abstract concepts.”

Irish Times Art Critic, Aidan Dunne, commented, “Cowboys in saddles, smoking models, posed fruit and drapery are given room and strength to claim their own identity within a single canvas.  In Schneider’s paintings, independent fields of unlikely imagery pulsate.  Foreground and background vibrate off each other, switching roles.  Sophisticatedly staged, the artist utilizes color to create frictional, fictional, interchangeable relationships among the paintings components.  Schneider’s colors separate and engage elements of his paintings in active play for presence, dominance and the favor of the crowd’s eye”.
