Throughout her prolific career, the liturgical artist and writer Ade Bethune created many works of art for and about children. She was proud of her role as a teacher as well as an artist, creating many artworks and activities aimed at families or specifically for children. The simplicity and directness found in all of her work is evident in her work for children.
This exhibition includes illustrations from Ade Bethune's published and unpublished children's books, illustrations and activities she created for Treasure Chest, children's items she designed and sold through her home business, and examples of her work with children.
For more information, see the narrative text (pdf file) accompanying the exhibition.
