Congratulations to all the authors whose work has been selected by artists for the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! The authors include Mary Lamphere! Mary is an author, artist, designer, grandma, and tackler of huge projects like Word of Art and Word of Art 2. Her selected story is an excerpt from a novel in progress.
The selection, entitled Victrola, was selected by artist Carol Kuczek. Carol’s training as an artist started in a private home where she took lessons in oil painting. Branching out, she attended classes at Rock Valley College for drawing, design, and figure sketching with live models. She works in various mediums: pastels, charcoal, acrylic, oil, and watercolors.
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.
