Through the Seasons with Eric Carle

Exhibitions

For the first time in the region, the work of world-renowned illustrator and young children’s book author Eric Carle is being celebrated in an exhibition, Through the Seasons with Eric Carle, which showcases the wonders of nature throughout the year. With more than 70 books to his name including the famous The Very Hungry Caterpillar, this exhibition looks at Carle’s brilliant imagery of the seasons, from hibernating bears in winter and hatching chicks in spring to colourful flowers in summer and ripe apple trees in the fall. Curated by Reem AlHashimi, the show features original artworks – including Carle’s painted tissue-paper collages from nine classic picture books – as well as unpublished work.

Through the Seasons with Eric Carle is organized by The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, Massachusetts, United States.
