We are delighted to congratulate our gallery artist, R. J. Kern, and his publisher Kehrer Verlag (Germany), on having The Sheep and the Goats awarded a Top 25 position in the annual The Most Beautiful German Books. For the 2018 awards, the jury bestowed awards on 25 books, from an initial submission of 729 titles.

The Sheep and the Goats, published by Kehrer Verlag in 2017, features Kern's Out To Pasture and Divine Animals: The Bovidae. The photobook includes an introduction by Lisa Volpe, Associate Curator of Photography at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, an essay by George Slade and an interview by Stuart Klipper. It was designed by Kehrer Design (Maximiliane Hüls).

Photographs from both series are currently on view at the gallery, through to June 30th. We also have a limited number of signed copies of The Sheep and the Goats.
