Storytime: The Art of Children's Book Illustrators in CT (FREE Art Show with Family-Friendly Reception April 28 2-5pm)

Friday, April 13, 2018
9:30 AM - 5:30 PM

Hartford Fine Art and Framing is proud to present our new art gallery show, "STORYTIME: The Art of Children's Book Illustrators in Connecticut," from April 13th through May 12.

Our free artists' reception will be on April 28th from 2-5pm, and will have a scavenger hunt for kids, a raffle, snacks and goodies, and a chance to meet some of the artists.

The show will feature art by many beloved Connecticut-based illustrators, including Rosemary Wells (Max and Ruby), Deborah Freedman (The Story of Fish and Snail), Robert Casilla (A Picture Book of Martin Luther King, Jr.), and Kinuko Y. Craft (The Twelve Dancing Princesses). Art lovers of all ages will also get to discover new talent and future story-time favorites.

A percentage of the proceeds from sales of art and books will go to Reach Out and Read, an organization that gives young children a foundation for success by incorporating books into pediatric care and encouraging families to read aloud together.

Hartford Fine Art and Framing is located at 80 Pitkin Street, East Hartford, CT, 06108. Our business hours are 9:30-5:30 on weekdays and 9:30-3 on Saturdays. We have convenient free parking and our gallery is wheelchair-accessible. Questions? Call 860-528-1409, email us at, or visit
