Gallery

This small gallery shows some of the breadth of Ashley Bryan´s artwork including: illustrations, cut outs, linocuts, sea glass windows and found object puppet.  Ashley´s art has been widely recognized with numerous prestigious awards including the New York Public Library Literary Lions (2008) the Coretta Scott King Book Award (2017, 2012, 2008, 2004, 1998, 1992, 1988, 1987, 1983, 1981)) and the Newbery Honor Award (2017). Ashley champions democratic art.  His puppets are made of commonly found objects washed up from the sea.  Fisherman’s gloves, stew bones, and old sweaters.  He takes cast-off objects and creates art of them. In his book Ashley Bryan's Puppets he shows how each of the puppets are a beautiful, unique creation, like all of humanity.  Everyone of us is different and Ashley continues to celebrate those differences.
