If you're in the Portland area, please join us for the launch party of Deborah DeWit Marchant: In the Presence of Books. The party starts at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at Annie Bloom's Books, located at 7834 SW Capitol Hwy in Portland, OR.
In the Presence of Books celebrates quiet, private, comfortable moments of reading books. Her soft paintings (pastels and oils on canvas and wood) depict books and readers enjoying them in various scenes – grassy knolls, overstuffed armchairs by the fireside, in the car on a roadtrip, etc.
This artbook is full-color, high quality, and contains 55 original paintings and pastels, all of which have sold to private and corporate collections. It features an introduction and texts by prominent PNW poet Kim Stafford, and foreword by Randall Koch (Sitka Center for the Arts and Ecology).
We are told that Kim Stafford will join Deborah at this event.
