Katonah Museum of Art Presents The Original Art of Peter H. Reynolds: The Dot and Ish

On view in the Learning Center at the Katonah Museum of Art from January 23-May 1 is The Original Art of Peter H. Reynolds: The Dot and Ish. The Dot and Ish are two stories in Reynolds’s “crea-trilogy” series of books that explore creative expression and human potential. Reynolds encourages readers to “make your mark, and see where it takes you.” Reynolds’s simple illustrations and heartwarming stories have inspired millions of children around the world to express themselves and “just make a mark!”

Peter H. Reynolds

Reynolds uses multimedia platforms to tell stories that matter, challenging readers to be their greatest selves. An avid illustrator since childhood, Reynolds is the founder of FableVisio , a social change agency that creates websites, games, animated films, graphic novels, and digital media inspiring learners of all ages to reach their full potential.

The Original Art of Peter H. Reynolds: The Dot and Ish is presented in conjunction with Drawn/Taped/Burned: Abstraction on Paper, on view in the Museum’s Main Galleries, where visitors will experience art in its purest physical form through 74 works on paper drawn from the Sally & Wynn Kramarsky Collection. In addition to Drawn/Taped/Burned, the Museum presents Tristan Perich: Machine Wall Drawing, a pen-on-wall drawing executed by a machine designed and built by the artist, which will operate in the Atrium throughout the run of the exhibition. Sculptor Jason Peters’s Reverse Polarities, a geometric sculpture created specifically for the Museum, is presented in the Project Gallery. Reverse Polarities’ radiant pyramid of light challenges perceptions of space and reality while exploring illusion and the formal elements of line and color.
