The Vine of Plenty, Nancy L. Clouse, construction paper
Date and TimeThursday, October 6, 2016

- The NEW Kirkhof Gallery, Russel H. Kirkhof Center
In this inaugural exhibition in the new Kirkhof Gallery the Art Gallery presents a selection of narrative illustrations created by Grand Rapids educator Nancy L. Clouse for the children’s book Sebgugugu the Glutton: A Bantu Tale from Rwanda, a retelling of a classic African folktale.
Clouse filled the 1993 publication with colorful African landscapes created from construction paper. Each illustration – while simple in appearance – is in fact carefully and intricately layered and composed.
This exibit is on view from August 26 – December 17, 2016. Free and open to the public.
