Public invited to hear Charlotte and Clyde Ewalt on jewelry and oil painting

Local artist couple Charlotte and Clyde Ewalt will present dual talks on “Lost Wax Castings” and “My Path to Paint.” This free public talk is at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Sept. 24, for Prescott Art Docents in the Prescott Center for the Arts Theatre, 208 N. Marina St.

Charlotte Ewalt’s work incorporates cutting and polishing of semi-precious stones, metalsmithing, electroforming, enameling, and lost wax casting. Most of her designs include more than one process to complete a work. Uniqueness and organic elements are the hallmarks of her designs.

Clyde Ewalt is a studio oil painter, with works ranging from visually exciting western landscapes to portraits of people doing things, according to a news release.

Prescott writers explore ‘Can you tell a book by its cover?’

At 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, the Professional Writers of Prescott (PWP) will host Mariah Sinclair, an award-winning book cover designer. She will tell the group why you have six seconds or less to attract a potential reader for your book, why a book cover is like a billboard that needs to catch the attention of viewers as they speed by, and why the cover is where your relationship with a reader begins.

PWP’s monthly meetings are open to the public and are held at the Prescott Public Library, 215 E. Goodwin St. in the Founders Suite (first floor).

Sinclair has worked for advertising agencies serving Fortune 500 companies, the City of Los Angeles as well as other government entities as a designer and digital marketer. She designed her first book cover in 2001. Now she focuses exclusively on developing book covers for independent authors. Her goal is to create beautiful, engaging book covers made to fly off the shelves. A well-created book cover promises a good read.

Professional Writers of Prescott, a 30-year-old organization, also known as Prescott Writers, is a network of published and non-published writers and editors who live in Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, and Dewey/Humboldt, and surroundings of Yavapai County. We aim for the highest expression of our craft and are dedicated to sharing knowledge.
