Gurney Museum Exhibition in Philadelphia

A new exhibition of my original art has just opened at the museum of the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. The Art of James Gurney includes more than 25 oil paintings from the Dinotopia books, as well as natural science illustrations, preliminary sketches, and maquettes. 

One of the featured images is "Waterfall City: Afternoon Light" from Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara. This is the only image that overlaps from the Delaware Art Museum exhibition a few years ago; the rest are all different.

The Art of James Gurney will be on view at the The Richard C. von Hess Gallery of Illustration at 333 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA through November 16.

In connection with the exhibition, I'll be doing a public presentation on Thursday, October 29 at 1:00 pm at Levitt Auditorium, with a reception following.

Congratulations 'Jimi G' on another fantastic exhibition! That "Waterfall City: Afternoon Light" is absolutely amazing!! I wish I could see it in person, (looking forward to a left-coast exhibition). Keep up the great work, and thanx for the Journey. -RQ

ROTM, We heard back from the director, and they were booked up pretty far in advance.

Totally worth the trip where ever this show goes. I loved it in Connecticut. Really beautiful and inspiring to see it up close. Also- that's relatively close to Delware Art Museum and the Brandywine Museum. You could do an illustration tour de force! :D

Looks like an amazing show, if it's ever in the northwest I will be sure to see it.
