Over a hundred poems, essays and short stories were submitted by more than fifty writers for Word of Art. Artists selected thirty of them to serve as inspiration to create a canvas using the medium of their choice. The words and artwork will be published in a beautiful hardcover, full-color book.
All lovers or art and the written word are invited to the Word of Art Exhibition and Book Release Reception held Friday, September 5, 2014 from 4:00 to 8:00 pm in the Celebration Room of Emmanuel Lutheran Church (920 Third Avenue, Rockford). The event is sponsored by In Print with cooperation with the Center for Arts and Spirituality and Art@Emmanuel.
Attendees will have an opportunity to meet authors and artists, see the original artwork on display and listen as the writers read their pieces. There will be a vote on Best in Show. Appetizers and soft drinks will be served.
Please contact Mary Lamphere for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org). Copies of the book will be on sale at the event ($15 for In Print members, $20 for non-members).
