Jeanette Luchese-Jacobs has had the honor to be included in The Blue Water International Sculpture Exhibit, in association with the Sauve Art Foundation celebrating public art with pieces in Sarnia and Port Huron.
The Blue Water International Sculpture Exhibit is a cross boarder cultural event between Canada and the United States. The Exhibit is located along both sides of the St Clair River in the cities of Port Huron, Marine City, St. Clair, Lexington and Sarnia. The exhibition features world-class international sculptures and performances located in parks, along the international Riverfront and in urban plazas. The objective is to celebrate art in public spaces and to create a uniquely International cultural destination where residents and visitors from around the world can come to experience the brightest new and world renowned talent in contemporary art completely free of charge, throughout the seasons. _______________________________________________________________
Anna Plesums published her seventh poetry collection this year, Frustration Freezer. The book is a collection of free verse poetry than spans several years of Anna’s life. A keen observer of both the natural world and people, Anna’s poems inspire on several levels. Congratulations Kaarina, Jeanette and Anna!
Gay Ann Hall's poem, "The Path Home", was selected for publication in the anthology, "Fire and Light" by The Poetry Institute of Canada's contest for 2011. Congratulations!
