Award-winning artist's childrens book illustrations to be exhibited for first time.

Tom Hedderich's take on The Three Pigs: a Doctor, a Lawyer, and an M.B.A.

It made a lot of sense to partner with one of America’s premier booksellers, Barnes & Noble, for the inaugural exhibition of Tom Hedderich’s work.

For the first time ever, more than 50 pieces of Tom Hedderich’s original watercolor illustrations will be exhibited at Barnes & Noble Booksellers in Newburgh, New York.

An award-winning Salmagundi Club artist, Hedderich created the illustrations from 2004 through 2006 for Matthew S. Field's ‘Father Like A Tree’ and ‘The Three Pigs, Business School, and Wolfe Hash Stew,' which the St. Louis Post Dispatch described one as “a children’s fantasy,” and reviewer Grady Harp lauded the books are “so rich in imagination that children will learn far more than a story.”

“Hedderich is a world-class artist, and we’ve been fortunate to work with him on two great examples of contemporary children’s literature,” says a publisher spokesperson. “It made a lot of sense to partner with one of America’s premier booksellers, Barnes & Noble, for the inaugural exhibition of Tom Hedderich’s work.”

In addition to his status as an exhibiting artist member of The Salmagundi Club, Tom Hedderich has also exhibited with Audubon Artists, Allied Artists of America, and American Artists Professional League, where he won the prestigious Claude Parsons Memorial Award in Watercolor at the 2010 Grand National Exhibition. Says Hedderich who lives in New York’s Hudson Valley, "I see art in everything around me."

The exhibit of Hedderich’s illustrations will kick-off on Saturday, April 2, 2011 with an author’s signing of both book titles from 1PM until 4PM at Barnes & Noble Booksellers located at 1245 Route 300 in Newburgh. The exhibition will continue through Saturday, April 30, 2011.
