We’re pleased to invite you to a Reception & Book Signing celebrating Shadra Strickland at the Highlights Foundation on Saturday, March 17. RSVP here.
The reception launches our 2018 Visual Arts Exhibit, which features Shadra’s original art from A Child’s Blessings and Prayers: From Faiths and Cultures Around the World, written by Deloris Jordan (Simon & Schuster/Paula Wiseman Books, October 2017.)
Shadra will also be Unworkshopping from March 15-18, using her time on campus to work on her latest projects. We’d like to invite you to join her–you can stay a day, a few days, or a week–it’s up to you!
At an “Unworkshop,” time is yours to spend as you please. No structure. No schedule. We’ll provide you with comfortable lodging and three great meals a day. From the moment you arrive, you’ll feel right at home and fussed over. We’ll furnish a peaceful setting that lets you focus solely on your work.
Here’s a look at some of Shadra’s wonderful artwork–click on an image for a larger view.
