Dinotopia opening at Norton June 5th -- posted by Florida Fine Art Blog



DINOTOPIA

June 5th - September 5th  -  Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach


Inspired by a deep and abiding interest in archaeology, lost civilizations, and the art of illustration, James Gurney invites viewers to enter a whimsical world in which dinosaurs and humans live side-by-side. Recounted in words and pictures in the best-selling book series Dinotopia, the artist’s compelling tale has engaged and enchanted readers by inviting them to explore the far reaches of a mysterious destination. Gurney’s luminous paintings, beautifully crafted drawings and hand-made models, which are featured in this exhibition, explore the wonders of the distant past through the lens of the imagination.


The artist James Gurney will be attending this weekend, with a colored pencil drawing workshop on Saturday, June 5 from 1:00-4:00 (there’s still space available), and he'll give a lecture on Sunday at 3:00, with a book-signing afterward. Come by and say hi and get a book or poster signed.


There will be a whole family day celebration on Sunday June 6 from 1:00 to 5:00 with live animals and activities. And there will be events going on all around town during the whole summer. Call 561. 832.5196 for more information.
