Salley Mavor’s Wee World

at the Providence Children’s Museum, Providence, RI

SAQA MA/RI member, Salley Mavor has a very exciting exhibit happening in our area. Don't we all wish we had a great reason to go to the Providence Children's Museum, the premier fun destination for children of all ages. Salley has given us one.


This ThinkSpace Exhibit features selected wee folk dolls, houses and props, plus 2 original fabric relief illustrations from “Pocketful of Posies” in the Geometry Gallery display case. Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes is a 72-page, full-color, hardcover edition, illustrated in fabric relief by Salley Mavor and published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Pocketful of Posies won the 2011 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for Picture Book and the Golden Kite Award for picture book illustration from the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. 

Original fabric relief illustrations from Pocketful of Posies have been exhibited around the country. The tour began when the book was published in September, 2010 and concluded in February 2016. Two of the original 50 illustrations from this book will be on display at the Children's Museum. Salley's book, Pocketful of Posies: A Treasury of Nursery Rhymes  is available from   Autographed copies are available from Salley Mavor’s Etsy shop.
