Jerald Pope writes, draws, and paints because he believes:
(1) Representative art reveals things about the artist, the subject, and the viewer that photography, for example, cannot.
(2) Art ducks around the Corner of Logic to tell stories, suggest solutions, sooth souls, and delight in most unexpected ways.
(3) If purpose there is, then his is found with pencil in hand.
He has a couple of degrees that taught him that college is fun. Along the way, he established two theater companies (still going), writing and directing tons of plays throughout the South, and teaching theater in a variety of Institutions of Higher Learning. He published poems, fronted a rock band, and won a smattering of awards appropriate to his status.
Jerald is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and the Colored Pencil Society.
Jerald will be reading his most recent “wordless novel”, Owl Girl, a new fairy tale about a little girl lost in the woods and is captured by a big owl who takes her home to its nest. What happens next is … magic!
This event is free and open to the public. Owl Girl, other books, and original artwork by Mr. Pope will be available for sale.
