-Book Signing for Silver Ribbon Dream-Songs and Stories of the Ohio & Erie Canal AND PERFORMANCE
Funded by John S. and James L. Knight Foundation
The gallery is celebrating a new music and art collaboration that brings to life the history of the Ohio and Erie Canal. Laurie & Ed Caner of local folk band Hey Mavis and Akron artist Leandra Drumm have just finished their CD and book project Silver Ribbon Dream. It's a 28-page hardcover book with a 10-song CD. The book features 10 beautiful illustrations by Drumm, which interpret the stories behind the original songs. Singer/songwriter Caner became inspired to learn about the canal while Hey Mavis band members were artists-in-residence at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park a decade ago.
Author and illustrator will be signing books from 1-4 pm Saturday, June 22 at Don Drumm Studios and Gallery, 437 Crouse St. in Akron. Drumm's illustration reprints will be available and Hey Mavis will perform. Their performance will be related to the songs and stories in the book.
The Square Scullery food truck will be on site!
