Vowel Art

Artists here in Northern Berkshire County who wish Inkberry well, as I do, have been invited to "draw a vowel." Our drawings will be put up for auction at the non-profit’s fifth anniversary party, slated for June 10 at the Cup & Saucer on Main Street in North Adams. (Further directions aren’t needed since, believe me, if you make it to North Adams and can find Main Street, you can find the Cup & Saucer!)

Since my freelance workload is making it hard for me to compose my normal scintillating blog prose this week, I will vamp instead by sharing the vowel art that I have personally contributed to the cause.

The party begins at 8, and if you want to own the piece of timeless alphabetical art displayed above you should arrive prepared to bid furiously and take no prisoners. Other fun stuff will be going on as well, as a trip to Inkberry’s web site will reveal.

Inkberry is a cherished non-profit lifeline for local writers that deserves everyone’s support, so rest assured that your money will be used in meritorious ways. Tickets are $30 (or $50 for two if you buy ‘em in advance).

I can’t think of a better way to spend a swinging Saturday night in North Adams — at least until the discos open.
