I’m thrilled to announce an exciting addition to my November 22 reading of Starbird Murphy and the World Outside. Joining me at the reading will be Seattle-based visual artist Julia Freeman, whose work currently appears at SOIL Gallery.
Julia and I met while working on the SOIL Gallery show, Loose Leaf: Artists and Writers Make Books Together. She mentioned that she loves to draw during readings and an idea was born! On November 22, from 7-8 pm at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, I will read the first four chapters of my new work, Starbird Murphy and the World Outside, and JULIA WILL DRAW IT! It will be an on-the-spot illustration experiment and YOU ARE INVITED!
Julia Freeman holds an MFA from the University of Washington and a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute. Her most recent solo exhibition, Very Little Room for Mishaps, was featured at King County’s 4Culture Gallery in 2011 and reviewed in the New American Paintings blog.
