Robert's Snow: Artist Open House & Exhibit

The first exhibit of snowflakes created for Robert’s Snow 2007 will be held from October 3rd through October 22nd at The Child at Heart Gallery in Newburyport, Massachusetts. The gallery, located at 48 Inn Street, is just a few steps from the center of town. I invite everyone who lives in the area to come see the snowflakes in person! They are artistic treasures that are little wonders to behold.

I know many children’s literature bloggers will be in Chicago this coming weekend for the First Annual Kidlitosphere Conference. I really wish I could be in two places at the same time—but that’s a physical impossibility. I would love to meet and chat with many of my favorite bloggers…but I have other plans. I’m going to be staying here in Massachusetts for the Robert’s Snow Artist Open House on October 6th.

The Robert’s Snow Open House at The Child at Heart Gallery will be held from 12:00 to 1:30 and from 3:00 to 7:00. Twelve of the “snowflake artists” will be visiting the gallery that day: Anna Alter, Jeannie Brett, Diane deGroat, Mary Newell DePalma, Jane Dyer, Alissa Imre Geis, Laura Jacques, Daniel J. Mahoney, Denise Ortakales, Lizzy Rockwell, Matt Tavares, and Wade Zahares.
