Upcoming gallery exhibit:
Alice 150 Years and Counting…
Beginning this October, we join museums and libraries worldwide in celebrating the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s famous tale, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
A result of over thirty-five years of collecting, the work of August and Clare Imholtz not only preserves early treasures of Carrollian fiction, but celebrates the far-reaching influence of Carroll’s legacy by enabling a cross-cultural look at international illustration and Alice ephemera.
We hope you will join us as we explore the brilliant and complex life of Carroll the writer, teacher, photographer, mathematician, inventor, and friend.
