Congratulations to all the authors whose work has been selected by artists for the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! The authors include Lisa Roettger. Lisa has been writing since childhood. Her work begins from personal experience – with family, from twenty plus years in Africa, from her faith – but expands to touch on themes common to all. Though poetry is her first love, her writing includes essays, short stories, and nonfiction.
Her work, Love on the Block, was selected by artist Terry Werntz. Terry is a retired art teacher who now enjoys illustrating children’s books. His first book, Grace the Church Mouse, was both written and illustrated by Terry. Having just completed the illustrations for The Good King written by Ron Fry, he is currently illustrating book three.
Authors are invited to read their selected works and the original art will be displayed at the Word of Art 2 Gallery Exhibition and Book Release Reception at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church Gallery on Friday, September 4, 2015. The gallery opens at 5:00 with the program beginning at 6:00. The reception is free and open to the public.
