Get Lost in a Book is an earnest push to get others engaged in the imaginative adventure that can happen when you pick up a book and read. The idea of telling the story by creating art surrounding the events in a book AND using a book as a vehicle for the art is a fun, creative endeavor. The W.H.A.T. artists bring you their creations connected to books they love. We've altered books in some way--by embellishing, decontructing, reconstructing, painting--to entice you to imagine what scenes your favorite book might conjure up in YOUR mind. Do you think of a ride in a sailboat? a walk through a jungle? a dance on an endless dance floor? a business to change the world? a ride back in time to ancient days? Reading gives you avenues to adventure no matter what book you are holding in your hands. Join us in enjoying books and all the ideas we can relive and dream about as we go from page to page.

We are W.H.A.T.--Women Having Art Together. We are connected to the art world either because we are presently in or have worked in some creative endeavor in our lives. We love getting together monthly to pursue some creative outlet. In each past Artprize, we have gathered together to show our art as a group. This year we are at it again and hope you will enjoy our entry and recognize the need for literacy in all walks of life. We hope to encourage all people to read and find the adventure in a book that can take you anywhere.
