In Other Words
Five Artists in their own words.

Join photographer John Alexander and felt artist Wendo Van Essen as they explore “in their own words.”
John and Wendo will be joined by three friends, Phlip Arima, a published performance poet,
Farooq Ikram, an artist and designer working with painting on silk, and Nancy Johnston, writer and fibre artist working with repurposed wool.
John will be showing some of his recent work with photographs of books and reading along with his popular graffiti photographs. Wendo will be bringing her original and eclectic array of felted wild and whimsy with a special focus on TEXT-ures.

In addition to the artworks for sale, there will be two presentations in the auditorium.
