Congratulations to all the authors whose work has been selected by artists for the Word of Art 2 exhibition and publication! The authors include Christine Swanberg! Christine has been writing poetry for decades. She has several books of poetry published with various national presses, most recently The Alleluia Tree (Puddin’head Press). Hundreds of her poems have appeared in national journals and anthologies such as Chiron Review, Garden Blessings, and Back to Joy. She has received many awards.
Christine’s work, Cottage by the Sea, was selected by artist Caroline Robinson. Like a window, artists show you the world through their own glass. Using a variety of visual mediums as her own ‘glass,’ Caroline says she hopes to show you the beauty in everything and everyone.
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.
