Kenneth Bloom will be at the Vendor and Artisan’s Fair on Nov 17th at Mount Vernon Creates for his new book signing. You might recognize this name from this year’s Lincoln Highway Arts Festival in Mount Vernon, IA.
This book is the 4th in a series of detective stories. Harper, the protagonist, hears that a 9 year old girl is missing. It’s January and she fears the worst. “I’ve got to find her John!” Her husband can’t fathom why the girl’s disappearance has become personal, but there are so many events in Harper’s past that she won’t share. What is clear is this case will unleash every ounce of power she possesses.

The Portrayal artists were out in full force on Oct 6th. The day was quite damp but, the artists persisted. I love seeing the artists creating all over town. It is so exciting to see the progression on each piece of work from a blank canvas to a finished master piece or taking someone’s vision to recording it in a photo. I also enjoy the feeling of the artists community sharing inspirations with each other.
Please come enjoy this exhibition at Mount Vernon Creates:
Opening Reception – November 23rd, 2018 (6 – 8 pm)
Exhibition – November 19th – January 25th, 2018
