    Book Signing Joan Paley, children's book illustrator

    For the first time in our Children’s Gallery, we are presenting a dialogue between two artists using two different mediums. Joan Paley’s colorful collages converse excitedly with Alice Means dazzling quilts. This conversation began about 5 years ago when Paley and Means connected at a high school reunion. Both artists had been working successfully in their respective mediums since the mid-1990s: Paley illustrating books and Means piecing together her quilts. Shortly after reconnecting, Paley sent Means copies of her illustrated books. In return, Means created a quilt of the Little White Duck. This began an artistic dialogue between the two childhood friends, the wonderful results of which can be seen in our current exhibition.
