Meet the Artist: (me!) - Kathy Stark at 7 pm, Thursday, May 11 at the San Marco Books and More.
Need a Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gift? (or Father’s Day Gift)?:
Give The Wilderness of North Florida’s Parks by Kathy Stark
- signed by Kathy (and Tanner if you want!)
I will be displaying my original art used for the sketchbook journal pages about 60 of our wilderness parks. The bookstore will be ‘transformed’ into pages of the book!
Walk around viewing the original art - book pages and be immersed in art, education and history all about our amazing park system and our community!
Meet the real Tanner - he will be there too! You can get his ‘paw-o-graph’!
And children (and adults...) can make their own animal track guide using Kathy’s hand-made life-size stamps!
