The works of Stan Fellows and Michael Rosen, an illustrator and writer respectively of children’s books, will be exhibited in the University of Findlay’s Lea Gallery, located in the Virginia B. Gardner Fine Arts Pavilion, from Oct. 3-28.
A free, public reception with the artists will be held Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.
Fellows and Rosen visited UF in 2015 to speak as part of the Wilkin Event Series, which had focused that year on visual literacy. The two have created several books together, such as “The Dog Who Walked with God,” “The Cuckoo’s Haiku and Other Birding Poems” and “The Tale of Rescue.”
During his 40 years as an artist and illustrator, Fellows, a Colorado resident, has created works for publications such as Martha Stewart Living and National Geographic. He has also taught watercolor and illustration classes in addition to collaborating on book projects. More information on him can be found at http://stanfellows.blogspot.com/
Rosen, from Glenford, Ohio, is an animal and nature lover who has been inspired by his outdoor adventures growing up. He earned a master’s degree in poetry from Columbia University. His website can be accessed here.
