Congratulations to all the authors whose work has been selected by artists for the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! The authors include Shannon Russell! Shannon Russell loves to write, but is also passionate about music and history. A highlight of her life was studying for a year in Scotland. She’s worn many hats, including librarian, but now she prefers looking after her boyfriend and elderly cat when she isn’t working on her fantasy novel.
Shannon’s work, The Cat who Walked Across the River, was selected by artist Kevinne Stredde. Kevinne is a 23 year old Nursing Major at Aurora University. She resides in Montgomery, Illinois with her family and four rescued pets. Although she is interested in art and writing, Kevinne’s true passion lies in music and composing for piano.
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.
