New Modernists of Illustration Featured in Land of Enchantment Exhibition Organized by ArtCenter College of Design

An opening reception with the artists on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m., is free and open to the public.

Land of Enchantment features the innovative work of Patrick Hruby, Loris Lora, Ellen Surrey and Alexander Vidal. Paying homage to the legendary American Modernist, Alexander Girard, the works offer a dramatic departure from what is usually considered traditional illustration. The bold and playful work represents a new form of illustration in partnership with technology and its limitless possibilities.

Visitors will experience illustration as environment since the work adopts an unexpected scale and plays with mood and emotion on multiple surfaces such as products, interiors and as home décor. The premise for the exhibition is to show illustration in its new form, surface design, and celebrate the specialization recently launched at ArtCenter College of Design within the Illustration department chaired by Ann Field.
