Congratulations to author Cherie Hauptman! Her work has been selected to be in the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! Cherie is a watercolorist and writer who is encouraged by her DeKalb area SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) group to attempt ventures such as Word of Art 2. She is further encouraged by her grandchildren who are awaiting a book for each of them.
Her work, entitled Teacher, Teacher, was selected by artist Sheila Kelly Welch. Sheila is a mother, grandmother, former teacher, and published author/illustrator. She majored in art at Temple University’s Tyler School of Fine Arts. Her most recent illustrations were done for her stories, Mess-Up Molly and Big Cat and Kitten, digitally published by MeeGenius.
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.
