Art Embraces Words

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

Please join us for Art Embraces Words, a recurring free series. The program features emerging authors reading excerpts of their work; local artists speaking about their visual art; and a Q&A with audience members. An outdoor reception with light refreshments follows. Our 2022 Art Embraces Words season is scheduled on Saturday afternoons with readings from 2:00 - 3:30pm. We alternate writer and artist presenters, announced by our emcee Sue Farmer, LAC Board member and co-chair of Art Embraces Words. A media table is provided for authors , artists, and information of interest to the literary and artistic community. Book sales are encouraged.

This program is funded by a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Lafayette.
