The latest exhibition at Central’s Collins Gallery is Allen Say: An Illustrator of His Life and Ours.

Featuring original artwork from his books including the Caldecott Medal recipient Grandfather’s Journey, the Oregon Book Awards winner Drawing from Memory, and upcoming release The Favorite Daughter, it is a definite must-see for fans of this local talent or of picture book art. Be prepared to be impressed by his careful attention to detail and his “great skill in depicting qualities of light.”

A reception with Allen Say and John Wilson Special Collections Librarian Jim Carmin will be held on Sunday, June 9, 2-3:30PM.

Read an article by Jeff Baker about the exhibition (which runs until June 30th) over at The Oregonian.
