Kathryn Carr Book Signing

Come meet local Scherenschnitte artist, Kathryn Carr when she will be at The Artsmiths' Shop to sign copies of her new book.  Kathryn did a series of photographs of her hand-cut paper dioramas for Troy Howell's Lizbeth Lou Got a Rock in Her Shoe.  While written for ages 2-7, Kathryn's beautiful illustrations will delight readers of all ages.  Books will be available for purchase for $17.99 + tax (while supplies last).

"It's Carr's elegant cut-paper dioramas that command attention.  Rendered in warm browns and lit by fiery golden light, their whimsy dovetails nicely with Howell's verse, while out-of-focus trees and grasses create a lovely sense of three-dimensionality.  Carr's trees feel inspired by the art nouveau movement, and along with characters' formal attire, seem to plant the story in the early 20th century (a wide-angle view of the park reveals an angel fountain and nearby buildings, suggesting New York City's Central Park as a possible setting)." — Publishers Weekly
