February 5: Art Unveiling Reception & Month-long Art Show
Thursday, February 5th - 6:00-7:30 pm at Graham’s Book and Stationery & Chrisman Picture Frame
Close your eyes and envision the changing, contrasting scenes of All the Light We Cannot See, the characters struggling for their voices to be heard, the emotions and subtleties of their journey vividly painting a story. Think about the sensations evoked. Now open your eyes to the portrayal of another’s vision in our Art Unveiling.
Come to Graham’s Book and Stationery to partake in this demonstration of 19 well known artists’ impressions of the novel. Meet the artists: Beth Verheyden, Bill Baily, Bonnie Garlington, Debby Neely, Dyanne Locati, Jani Hoberg, Kara Pilcher, Lisa Wiser, Loren Nelson, Mary Burgess, Robert Schlegel, Ruth Armitage, Sally Bills Bailey, Susie Cowan, Susan Greenbaum, Sue Jensen, Barbara Wagner, Leslie Cheney Parr and Jan Rimerman and discuss the substance of their work and the motivations behind it.
