Beautiful Art and Writing

Recently, we held our Pen and Paintbrush Book Discussion. This is done three times a year, in partnership with the Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Art. We discuss a book related to the current art exhibit and then view the art. For this session, Margie Crisp, author and artist, was there to discuss her book River of Contrasts. She traveled the Colorado River, and wrote about the landscape and the people she encountered. Her illustrations are scattered throughout the book and it is wonderful. I highly recommend checking out a copy. We were able to hear from Margie about the creative process and how she recorded her observations and thoughts with both art and writing. The we enjoyed the exhibit which featured works by Margie and other Texas artists.
