Title: “The Art of Identification”
Date/Time: Saturday, February 17, 6:45pm (doors open at 6:15pm)
Location: Burchfield Penney Tower Auditorium
Description: In the same way that poetry conveys rich meaning in just a few words, the illustrations in a field guide need to give maximum information in minimum space. Tracing his own artistic development through sketches and paintings, David discusses the unique requirements and challenges of illustrating for a field guide.
Talking Leaves Bookstore will be present with copies of Sibley's book for purchase.
