Imaginary Worlds

Imaginary Worlds are places many of us visit through stories or images in books, movies, and dreams. They are realms where environments seem real, yet are not quite connected to our concrete world. They are make-believe, mysterious, and magical, and we can go there to escape and dream and imagine, whatever our age. This exhibition was curated by FAM’s Education Director, Susan Yost Filgate in conjunction with the Kennedy Center's Any Given Child program with the Fresno County Office of Education. With this program, every third grader in Fresno Unified visits the Museum and learns about illustrators and illustrations. The exhibiting artists reveal imaginary worlds through their artwork, including engaging paintings by Leslie Batty and Leonard Filgate, colorful works on paper by Doug Hansen, Leslie Hawes and Bruno Pegoretti, and the amazing anamorphic sculpture of Karen Mortillaro. Images: Bruno Pegoretti, The Mad Hatter's Tea Party, 2014, color pencil on paper; and Leonard Filgate, Tea Anyone? (from the Rip Squeak® Series) 2015, acrylic on canvas Exhibition Support: Bonner Family Foundation Continuing Exhibition from Fall 2015 through August 28, 2016
