Lost Our Marbles

Yesterday we had a fine trip to the Tacoma Art Museum to see the Eric Carle exhibit. Carle is one of Merridy's heroes and she wasn't disappointed. It was a wonderful show! Wish I could show images from inside the exhibit, but cameras weren't allowed. Eric Carle has illustrated award-winning, classic children's books such as The Hungry Caterpillar, The Grouchy Ladybug, The Very Busy Spider, The Very Quiet Cricket and more. The videos accompanying the show with Carle doing live demonstrations and discussing his life and career were alone worth the price of admission.  Other exhibits at the museum included works by a variety of well-known and familiar Northwest artists: William Cumming, Phillip Levine, Paul Horiuchi, Michael Spafford, et al.
