Friday Finds, Alice in Wonderland Style: White Rabbit Art
See me peeking out of the rabbit hole at the Noyes Museum of Art? Unfortunately, I couldn't take any photographs inside their Alice: Into the Looking Glass exhibit so you'll have to cry a pool of tears and ride it to Oceanville, New Jersey before May 20, 2012 to experience it yourself. The exhibition houses several fascinating interpretations of Lewes Carroll's classic novels, including a few vintage books where his storybooks were adapted by other cultures.
Drink Me by Victor Grasso, a dramatic photo-realist painting of Alice after she ventures to taste from the bottle, looms just inside the entrance. Alice and her curious creatures abound around the room, depicted in more paintings, drawings and sculptures. My very favorite artwork from the collection is a marvelously detailed mosaic of the Caterpillar puffing his hookah by Doreen Adams. Putting together all those pieces would have certainly driven me mad as the hatter!
The entire display was wonderful, but I still tumbled down a tunnel at Etsy in search of more Alice in Wonderland art. I even caught up with the White Rabbit! But oh my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting - I better hurry and post his cuteness before my watch strikes Saturday.
