Local artist to brighten up Subiaco Museum

Local artist, Kelly Canby, is set to brighten up Subiaco Museum this August with her new exhibition – The Art of Illustration.
Kelly is an award-winning local illustrator with 25 books to her name, and Subiaco Museum will be showcasing some of her colourful preliminary sketches and character models, including illustrations from Rodney, The Hole Story, Little Light and the Jaclyn Moriarty collaboration.  
The museum will also host a number of Coffee with the Artist events, as well as some workshops to create pop-up books and afterschool readings with Kelly.
People are welcome to come along and watch Kelly at work on select dates as she sketches her new book from the museum.
Kelly is on the judging panel for the City’s Shaun Tan Awards this year which is a visual art award encouraging WA school students to explore their imagination and creativity.
The Art of Illustration will run at Subiaco Museum from Friday 6 August to Monday 29 November.
