Bright red poster with black lettering announcing exhibit, June - Sept. 1983. Also lists dates, location, and sponsors. Dominant image is reproduction of Layton's drawing. It shows the couple looking out of a snowy window. At the top of the window, five blue and white birds perch on a bare branch. At the bottom of the window, three cardinals rest on a branch and three others are on the window sill. A bird feeder and a thermometer are hooked to the window. Inside, Layton wears a blue dress and gray sweater; she points at one of the cardinals. Her husband stands behind, looking glum and wearing a yellow sweater over a blue and white striped shirt. The fireplace burns, suggesting coziness. All of the text appears below the drawing.
