Opening Friday 24 January at 6 pm
Welcome to the exhibition concept Tegnerforbundets utvalgte, bildebøker 2019 ! The exhibition focuses on picture books, including comic books, published in 2019. We have collected 116 books in this category, a great diversity that we are now looking forward to show in Tegnerforbundet . Our professional jury consisting of Egil Nyhus, Lene Ask and Anders Kvammen, has selected 12 of the books that receive extra attention, where a selection of the drawings, either as analogue or digital drawing, is exhibited in the gallery. This is a unique opportunity to see the diversity of last year's picture books and the best of drawing and illustration art.
The selected exhibitors are a good mix from very experienced to debutants:
