Telling a Story with a Picture: An Afternoon with Dahl Taylor

Albany artist Dahl Taylor will discuss his career and the process of illustration.

Dahl Taylor, artist

One of the primary aims of illustration is to help and enhance the written word.

In a “How It’s Done” talk, Taylor will describe the process of building an image to tell as much of a story’s narrative, mood, and detail as possible. He will also discuss the ways that a project can come to an illustrator as well as the various stages of the direction and approval process.

Included with museum admission*

Taylor's work is currently featured in the exhibition Paintings of Addy®: Dahl Taylor's Original Illustrations for American Girl, now through June 17, 2018.

*We have limited space for our lectures and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees will receive a wristband at the admission desk the day of the lecture.
