CBCA National Conference & Bob Graham Exhibition
Our dog Nick enjoyed meeting these new dogs who are recent additions to the Bob Graham retrospective exhibition we
are curating! The exhibition opens in a couple of weeks at the Canberra
Museum & Art Gallery - the opening on Friday May 16 is part of the CBCA conference National Treasures. Bob will be in Canberra for the opening and give an Artist's talk on Saturday May 17.
Books Illustrated will also have a stand at the CBCA conference, so we look forward to catching up if you are attending.
It's a fun and full exhibition for
all ages and you'll have the opportunity to see it over four months -
you can meet the dogs on the exhibition couch and read a few books!

A bird in the hand! Bob Graham: a retrospective
Sat 17 May – Sun 24 August
Canberra Museum & Art Gallery
Opening on Friday May 16, as part of the CBCA National Conference
Bob Graham is one of Australia’s most eminent authors. His picture
books, loved by generations of families, have won national and
international awards throughout his 30-year career. This exhibition
explores and celebrates his creative practice.
A unique opportunity to see precious sketch books, manuscripts, memorabilia, and illustrations from books including Greetings from Sandy Beach; Max; Let’s Get a Pup; and How to Heal a Broken Wing.
These works and objects have been carefully selected from the artist’s
studio and from the Lu Rees Archives, University of Canberra, a treasure
trove of Australian children’s literature.
