Wearable words. A celebration of the Literary and Jewelry Arts by 13 Women Artists.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Facèré owner Karen Lorene will be reading an excerpt from her new novel.

"A six-legged bear. Four-inch claws. A gurgling growl. Paul’s legs churn through molasses. A tree ahead. His hands reach. His fingers grasp. Tree bark peels like scabs. Below him bear paws slam the tree. Whup! Whup! Whup!
A branch overhead! Almost safe! His arms are like sludge, like cooked noodles, like Jell-O. His heart pounds. Claws scrape his heel, engulf his foot. The tree shakes and the bear yells in a hollow voice that echoes up into the mountains and over the valleys––echoes and echoes, “SHALL WE DANCE? SHALL WE DANCE? SHALL WE DANCE?”
Paul laughs at the joke until he looks down. He has no legs. He can’t dance. He can’t climb. He can’t move or wiggle or breathe. He can’t… even when his Mom’s voice calls, “You can do it! You can do it!” He can’t." 

From Dancing with Bear by Karen Lorene
