I recently heard from Phoebe Yeh at HARPER COLLINS CHILDREN'S BOOKS that Gallery Della-Piana located in Wenham, Massachusetts, plans to hold an exhibit of selected works from the fun MATHSTART series created by Stuart Murphy http://www.stuartjmurphy.com/. They requested a few of my illustrations from The Greatest Gymnast of All, The Sundae Scoop, Tally O’Malley, and Game Time!. The show will open on October 23, and continue through December 29, 2010.
Gallery Della-Piana is a small but prestigious venue on Boston's North Shore (http://gallerydellapiana.blogspot.com/). Recent book illustration shows included a Tomie dePaola exhibit, a retrospective of works by Marylin Hafner, and a joint exhibit of works by Kelly Murphy and Jarrett Krosoczka. The gallery will publish a commemorative booklet about the exhibition and many events will be planned during the time of the show. These include the opening on October 23, a number of school visits, a possible librarian's talk, and maybe even a related theater production.

I'll keep you posted. This gives me an extra incentive to finish the ALPHABET POSTER I've been working on. A, b, C, d, E, f, G is for G O O D N I G H T........
