I hope you're prepared for some seriously awkward acronyms today. If not, you might want to go grab another cup of your favorite caffeinated beverage and warm up with a few tongue twisters before attempting. The SCBWI Tokyo Illustrator Exhibition will be held at the TAC Genkan Gallery from December 1st-14th.
Perplexed? Tongue-tied? SCBWI = Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. The much less mind-bending TAC = Tokyo American Club. See, that wasn't so bad. Although I am not a member, The Tokyo American Club is a wonderful group here in Tokyo that has been exceptional supportive of the arts.
The SCBWI Illustrator Exhibition features the artwork of 10 members displayed in the Genkan Gallery. The Gallery is open to the public (although much of the TAC is exclusive to members), and many of the works will be available for sale.
Time: December 1-14; 7:30am to 11pm (Opens noon on Dec. 1 and closes 6pm on Dec. 14) Place: Genkan Gallery. Tokyo American Club 1F Adult Lobby 4-25-46 Takanawa, Minato-ku, Tokyo 108-0074 For information, email: info(at)scbwi.jp Website: SCBWI Website: Tokyo American Club
The talent assembled for the show is as impressive as it is international. I can't stress enough how great I expect this exhibition to be, and I am thrilled to be included. The back of the postcard (with a map) is below. Here's the list of artists whose works I will be gawking at:
