Marxhausen Gallery Hosting Eric Carle
by Elyssia Finch
Eric Carle’s exhibit, “The Art of Eric Carle: Feathers, Fins and Fur” is on display in Concordia’s Marxhausen Gallery. The exhibit opened Aug. 24 and will be on display through Oct. 3.
“Feathers, Fins and Fur” includes original illustrations by Carle and a video about his illustrating process. Carle’s books are also part of the exhibit, including “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.”
The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the Plum Creek Children’s Literary Festival.
“Eric Carle is world renown for children books. Many books are on view for children and focus on animals” said James Bockelman, director of Marxhausen Gallery of Art.
Although Carle is an illustrator and writer of children’s books, Bockelman believes that the exhibit will appeal to all ages.
“Most can appreciate the artistic approach,” Bockelman said.
“Feathers, Fins and Fur” is a traveling exhibit from the Eric Carle museum.
The Marxhausen Gallery is located in Jesse Hall and is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 p.m.
