This exciting exhibition features more than 60 works combining the creative poetry of Robert L. Forbes and the highly imaginative art work of Ronald Searle.  The inventive and whimsical words of Forbes are insightfully illustrated with Searle’s joyful watercolor illustrations.  Rich with color and fanciful detail, the drawings capture the spirit and essence of each poem.  The delightful collaboration of these two artists invites the viewer to expand their imagination, creativity and appreciation of words brought further to life with illustration.

Ronald Searle was long known as one of the world’s top illustrators who produced drawings for Life Magazine, The New Yorker, and numerous British publications.  Robert Forbes has published three books and is fast becoming a major children’s author.
