In Other Words
The Gallery of the Ashe Arts Center is host to the exhibit, In Other Words, a companion to the 10th annual On the Same Page Literary Festival. Painters, photographers, and fiber artists were asked to create new work depicting an existing literary work, such as a poem, book, short story, or fairy tale using the title of that literary work as the title for the submission.
In Other Words opens September 6 and continues through October 7. The Artist reception will be held from 5-8 pm on Friday, September 8 in conjunction with Gallery Crawl. Cheryl Roberts, Fiber Artist, creates “A Lettuce Tree” in silk, wool and linen.
