Illustrations from the book, created by Jack Wiens for Get Out Books, will also be shown.
There will be a reception for artists and a book signing on Sunday, March 16, from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. Go to www.SunGallery.org for more info. The Sun Gallery invites teachers and classes to visit the gallery and enjoy free art Saturdays and special workshops.
