Courthouse Gallery Fine Art is pleased to announce they will open for the 2018 season on May 25 with their annual Spring Show highlighting gallery artists, and an exhibition of woodblock prints by Sedgwick artist Holly Meade (1956–2013). Meade’s lively prints are full of wit and charm, exploring everyday life, baking cookies or an afternoon nap, and her humorous personification of animals. Meade is also an award-winning children’s book author and illustrator, who has illustrated more than 30 children’s books. Her illustrations for Hush!: A Thai Lullaby by Minfong Ho won a 1997 Caldecott Honor for illustration, and for John Willy and Freddy McGee she was named an honoree for the Charlotte Zolotow Award for Creative Writing.
