Artists created work based off the chosen LO Reads book 'Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore'

PMG PHOTO: JONATHAN HOUSE  - Attendees check out the artwork featured in this year's Lake Oswego Reads reception.One of the traditions of the Lake Oswego Reads program is to invite artists to create work that represents the community's chosen book. This year, 20 local artists who read "Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore" by Elizabeth Rush, created artwork inspired by the book that focused on communities and people who've been impacted by climate change.

The artists explained their work during a reception Feb. 3 at the Lakewood Center for the Arts.

Participating artists included Stuart Adams, Bill Baily, Mary Burgess, Leslie Cheney-Parr, Susie Cowan, Marta Farris, Jenn Ferrante, Bonnie Garlington, Dave Haslett, Dotty Hawthorne, Dyanne Locati, Ann Munson, Debby Neely, Kara Pilcher, Jan Rimerman, Beth Verheyden, Lisa Wiser, Natalie Wood, Haelyn Y and Beth Yazhari.

The public can view the artwork at Lakewood's gallery through February.
