The Art of Dr. Seuss


"The Art of Dr. Seuss" is a national touring exhibition in recognition of the wonderful creative Theodor Seuss Geisel. My illustrator friends, Robyn Jorde, Nancy Heard, Wandie Ortiz and I visited this fantastic exhibit today. The exhibit was at a new gallery in Dallas, Storyopolis Fine Art which has recently relocated from Los Angeles, CA. Storyopolis is in association with The 4th Wall Gallery at the same location. The exhibition gives a glimpse into the creative and prolific artistic life of Theodor Seuss Geisel. In addition to Dr. Seuss, we saw some wonderful illustrations from Lane Smith, William Joyce, Alison Jay, and Nicoletta Ceccoli to name just a few. The owner, Matthew Abrammowitz, was extremely accommodating in showing us numerous illustrations and answering all of our questions! We are thrilled to have this fantastic gallery in Dallas. The Dr. Seuss exhibit ends today, but Matthew said they have some wonderful exhibitions planned for the future. Check it out!

Some of the fantastic illustrations.

Nice write-up, Bobbie! I agree, this is a wonderful gallery to have in Dallas.

That is so neat! How fun would it be for first grade to go there on a field trip? Carly should definitely look into that.
