Illustrators vary greatly in how they solve the problem of storytelling, each striving to create attention-grabbing and memorable imagery. This week, an exhibition opens at Mercer Gallery (Monroe Community College, 1000 E. Henrietta Road) to spotlight the work of 57 internationally known illustrators. Each artist was invited to present his or her personal favorite illustration that he/she has ever created. The show is curated by (and also features) post-modern painter Kathy Calderwood, and illustrator and animator David Cowles, whose work (and that of his two artistic kids) is also currently featured at Record Archive.
"Good Work: The Illustration Art Invitational" opens Friday, January 24, with a reception 7-9 p.m., and continues through February 21. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-7 p.m., and Friday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free. Visitors should park in Lot F.
