Marisa Hochman & Bette Woodland
A Walk in Pirate’s Cove
February 23, 7:00 pm in the Atrium
The enchantment of childhood comes to life in this charming tale as three young children enjoy a summer’s day exploring in the splendor of the seaside and the natural world.
Join them as they hunt for wishing stones, sea glass, and other simple treasures on a seemingly endless day in July.
Marisa Hochman’s lyrical poetry and the warmth of Bette Woodland’s oil paintings evoke a beautiful truth: that simply looking, finding and being are the grandest adventures of all.
Drawing on her own memories and the activities and interests of her children, Hochman weaves stories that have a timeless and universally appealing quality.
Bette Woodland is a gold medalist from the School of Art at the University of Manitoba. Of primary interest to her as an artist is the effect of light on both the figure and on day-to-day experiences.
