Took a little jaunt a week or so ago to the Irving Arts Center. It's about twenty minutes from my house. I was impressed - they have art galleries, a theater, and a small sculpture garden.
The main exhibit I wanted to see was The Golden Books 65 Year Legacy. They displayed fifty or more original artwork illustrations from Golden Books. Biographies of the artists were interesting, and one stuck out - Richard Scarry. Yep, he began in the Golden Book world. One of the richest illustrations was from Little Red Riding Hood. It was spectacular.
Another small exhibit contained gorgeous black and white photos by Terry Cockerman. He took them in the Big Bend area of Texas. Stunning contrasts.
I was very glad I took a little adventure on a Thursday. Poke around in your own backyard - you never know what you might find.
