Tell Me a Story highlights the work of 14 artists who have illustrated children’s books about Maine. There are boats of all sizes and shapes, ponds, harbors, ocean views,fields and forests, snow and beach scenes, from real to imagined. Many are inspired by true stories and some are pure fun and fantasy. Their differences aside, all of these artists tell compelling stories through their work, going beyond illustration to highly accomplished and evocative works of art.
