NNU’s Friesen Art Galleries are pleased to host the original illustrations from former art professor Jonathan Bouw’s latest work “The Boy, the Kite & the Wind.” Authored by Al Andrews, the book received the 2012 Gelett Burgess Children’s Honor Book Award for outstanding contribution to children’s literature. Bouw’s original illustrations will be on exhibit thru Nov. 14.

Bouw will give an “art talk” Wednesday, September 19 at 3 p.m., with a reception to follow from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the Friesen South Gallery. Books will be available for purchase at the event. All profits from “The Boy, the Kite and the Wind” will go to charities that aid those in need such as Compassion International, World Vision, The Red Cross, Restore International, Blood Water Mission and Thistle Farms. Both events are free and open to the public.

Grammy Award-winning songwriter and author Gloria Gaither said, “In a world in which kids are so bombarded with the material and the immediate, this treasure is a great way to encourage them [children] to see below the surface and to invest their choices in things that cannot always be seen.”

The Friesen Art Galleries are located inside the Brandt Center and are open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. or by appointment. Visit www.theboythekiteandthewind.com for more information.
