Congratulations to all the authors whose work has been selected by artists for the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! The authors include Caryl Barnes! Caryl is a retired professional writer of research reports, articles, proposals, and newsletters. She now writes short stories and book reviews and is well into a novel, Helping the Dead.
Her work, Sea of Marmara, was selected by artist Linda Kleczkowski. Linda is a glass artist and writer residing in Cherry Valley, Illinois. She works in cold, warm, and hot glass. Her favorite types of subject matter for her glass creations are abstracts based on art deco, Celtic, and Frank Lloyd Wright designs, nature, and whimsy.
