Peek-a-Book, an exhibition of over 50 original illustrations, celebrates the diversity of artworks for children's books by women artists.


In line with the 2018 National Women's Month celebration, Peek-a-Book underscores the contribution of women illustrators in the field of children’s literature in the Philippines. Some of the artists have been creating books since 1990s.


The exhibit also highlights the creative process behind picture book making by showcasing the illustrators' preliminary studies, character sketches, storyboards and art materials. Another part of the exhibit is a reading corner where viewers are invited to browse about 150 books the artists have illustrated through the years.


The 13 participating artists are: Kora Dandan Albano and Liza Flores, who curated this exhibit, Pergy Acuña, Frances Alvarez, Jamie Bauza, Yas Doctor, Iori Espiritu, Abi Goy, Beth Parrocha, Bru Sim-Nada, Angela Taguiang, Ara Villena, and Bernadette Solina-Wolf.
