Interview with Karen Raab

Monday, December 1, 2008.

Perhaps because of the dedicated children’s picture book art galleries there has been a rise in dedicated children’s picture book art sections in traditional galleries and we keep learning about special events for children’s picture book artists.  Anyway, it seems that children’s picture book art is becoming increasingly recognized and respected.

We were recently contacted by the Chemers Gallery (Chemer’s Gallery Blog) in Tustin, California to inform us of their 17th annual Children’s Book Illustration Show taking place from December 6 through 20, 2008, with a special event for the show opening taking place from 1-5pm on the 6th.

Our guest on this edition of Just One More Book!! is Karen Raab, owner of the Chemers Gallery, who tells us more about their exciting event which benefits Orange County Ronald McDonald House.
