CANAJOHARIE, NY.- "Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos and Toys in the Attic" is an exhibition of enlarged photographs and models that transport both adults and children into a magical world. The exhibition opens at the Arkell Museum at Canajoharie on Sunday, November 15th with an opportunity to meet Walter Wick and see and hear how he creates his photographs of fairly tales and optical tricks.

Walter Wick’s interest in puzzles and optical illusions led to work for Games magazine in the 1980s. Wick’s playful photographs of toys and household objects came to the attention of Jean Marzollo, and in 1991 the two collaborated on "I Spy: A Book of Picture Riddles". Wick and Marzollo went on to create over twenty I Spy books. Wick also pursued his own independent interests that lead to the books "A Drop of Water: A Book of Science and Wonder, Optical Tricks", and the popular series Can You See What I See.

The exhibition at the Arkell Museum includes the artist’s early black and white photographs as well as his photographic puzzles from his I SPY and Can You See What I See? books for children. Visitors will also get a glimpse at his creative
process by seeing the three dimensional models he used to create his

The Walter Wick exhibition was organized by the New Britain Museum of American Art in Connecticut.
