Congratulations to all the authors whose work has been selected by artists for the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! The authors include Leone Castell Anderson. Leone is a published author of ten children’s books including picture books, Golden Books, and middle-grade historical novels. Her poetry varies from adult subjects of importance to her, to kid subjects with a touch of humor.
Leone’s work, Wind Farms, was selected by artist Janet Werntz. Janet finds mixed media and art journaling to be her choice of artistic expression. Her family owned an art supply store for 40 years. She married her high school sweetheart, who majored in art education. Retired, she makes Freeport, Illinois her home.
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.
