Rosalie Ungar is the author of IN A HEARTBEAT: The Ups & Downs of Life with Atrial Fib.
As a professional published writer of 2 books, both memoirs, I have been a member of National League of American Pen Women (NLAPW) for several years. This national organization has been in existence since 1897 and is headquartered in Washington, D. C. My membership is with the Central Ohio branch, one of 80 branches of women artists, writers, composers and many other professions all connected with the arts.
Currently our work is on display at The Works, a fabulous museum in downtown Newark, Ohio. Google it or go to their website. It’s a museum on the move and is soon to house a SciDome Planetarium.
The NLAPW work will remain at The Works until July 6th. From there it goes immediately to Columbus, just 30 miles away, to The Carnegie Gallery in The Columbus, Ohio Metropolitan Library.
The display of NLAPW art features 18 of the members with paintings, fabric art, crafts (fabulous bird cages), magnificent sculptors, poetry, book selections and some collaborations containing more than one category. My most recent book, IN A HEARTBEAT: The Ups & Downs of Life with Atrial Fib is featured as a wall hanging in a collaboration with artist Abby Feinknopf.
Our collaboration has to do with medical problems we have both endured. My book in a shadow box has an inner frame collage of red penned edits from the first draft about heart meds and tests for complications from my heart problems. Abby’s is a woman who has battled cancer and brightly covers her head in flowers in place of hair lost in treatment. A collage of her prescription papers is part of the painting.
See the photo above taken at the recent opening gallery reception and artists’ talk featuring from left to right artist and writer Brenda Layman, artist and writer Abby Feinknopf, sculptor Renate Fackler, and me.
Read both of my memoirs, NO SEX IN ST. TROPEZ, a fun story of adventures in 1974 Europe, and IN A HEARTBEAT: The Ups & Downs of Life with Atrial Fib.
