In the Miles Gallery is our fascinating "Historical Exhibit".
Before the 19th Century, illustrators in children's literature were
seen as secondary to the authors. Edmund Evans, a publisher/printer in
London had the foresight to advance three quality artists in the field
of children's literature later to be known as "The British
Triumvirate." These were Walter Crane, Randolph Caldecott, and Kate
Greenaway. This exhibit is divided into the following segments:
"Illustrators of the 19th Century", "Stratemeyer Syndicate," and "The
Rise of the Picture Storybook." We feature works from each member of
"The British Triumvirate" in our exhibit.
Also in the Miles Gallery is the "Printmaking Exhibit"
highlighting techniques such as linocut, etching, cardboard cut,
collagraph and even potato print. Artists Ed Emberley, Marcia Brown,
and Arthur Geisert are among those with works of art in this exhibit.
