Curated by Janet Self, Flockworks’ 4th Annual “Art of Letter, Word & Book” exhibit at OddFellows Gallery in Mendocino this past May was inspiring and fun. Artists and authors alike joined to celebrate the written word with Bookmobiles, Word Journeys, and an overall appreciation of letters. Janet's imagination is brilliant and awe inspiring. She contributes stunning pieces to the MCWC event every year, and we are lucky to have them! Don’t miss the 5th Annual Art of Letter, Word & Book exhibit in 2017. Rumor has it the derby is going to the streets!
