Always lovely to receive a collection of great illustrations from SVA. The exhibition brings together animations, children’s books, graphic novels, figurative paintings, comic books and other narrative works by 21 students graduating from the MFA Illustration as Visual Essay Department at SVA. Curated by faculty member David Sandlin, the exhibition will be on view April 29 – May 14, 2011 at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th Floor, New York City.
