IAMA is proud to support female illustrators of the bay area! Come meet and learn artists and their unique styles of illustration. Tori Hunter, an Oakland native, closely compares her work to that of the Black Manga movement. Sandhya Prabhat, originally from India and now living in the South Bay, has had a widely popular illustration series celebrating classical female fictions Femmes and Tracie Timmer, from the Bay Area and specializes in children's books using her art as an outlet for all the zany ideas that bounce around in her head all day, bringing them to life on her canvas.
This is not just an opportunity for the artists to represent themselves and female artists alike in a predominantly male exhibition world, but for all people, especially aspiring female artists, to meet, talk, learn, and follow in these artist's footsteps.
The artists Tori Hunter, Sandhya Prabhat & Tracie Timmer will be at the museum for an interactive illustration and art session with the kids participating in a Day of Crafts event.
