NEWS: BabyLit Exhibition at Finch Lane Gallery


Salt Lake City—Writer Jennifer Adams and illustrator Alison Oliver pair their work with two other exhibitions at the Finch Lane Gallery that explore the themes of boundaries, time, and choices. The exhibitions run October 4 through November 15, with an artists’ reception on Friday, October 4 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.

BabyLit collaborators Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver created a board book series that brings classic literature with engaging graphics to young learners. They will share their collaborative process of creating this popular series at 8 p.m. at the opening reception on October 4.
The team has collaborated on the successful BabyLit board books. With twelve books published and more planned, the series brings classic literature with engaging graphics to young learners. This exhibition, Classics Meet Modern: Combining Art and Text for BabyLit, illustrates how the text and images are combined to bring a modern twist to a familiar subject.
