Art Embraces Words

July 25, 2021 @ 2:00 pm 3:30 pm PDT

Writers paint images with words. Artists tell stories with color. Together they enrich our community.

Please join us in 2021 for Art Embraces Words, a recurring Sunday Webinar series. The program features emerging authors reading excerpts of their work; artists displaying their visual artwork in a slideshow; and a Q&A with audience members. A link to register on Zoom will be available soon.
