Art in Children’s Books

Jolene Joy Moss, first recipient of a grant from the Marianne Oberg Foundation Spiritual Art (MOFSA), will talk about her project of writing spiritually inspired  children’s books. Bob Oberg, MOFSA founder, and Carlos Alvarez Cotera, illustrator for the book, will give some background about how the project came to be. Jolene will read selections from her book Emmalina and Papa’s Healing Hands. The book lightly and playfully introduces the idea of energy and light as witnessed through “Papa’s healing hands.” On display will be some of the original paintings created by Carlos that were used for illustrations in the book. The event will be held from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 12 at the Mint Hill Arts Gallery at 11205 Lawyers Road in Mint Hill.
