The Society of Illustrators 2023 Original Art Show was hosted on November 9, 2023. This annual competition highlights the very best in children’s illustration from books that were published in the U.S. The attendance was made up of editors, art directors, publishers, illsutrators, art students – all there to appreciate the range in style and creativity in childrens books. We were thrilled to learn that five of our Bright artists had works being featured at the show! Here’s a quick recap of our evening. Take a look below to see a few photos from the reception and our immensely talented Bright artists that were featured in this years show.
