The Invitation To Artists: is also a place where the Literary Meets the Canvas.

I want to create a new venue for artist to showcase their masterpieces creating a bridge between literary and traditional art.

Based in part on my literary work, artist and their artwork will be hosted here in a gallery dedicated to the artist and my novels.   As an artist, your interpretation and creation is entirely at your discretion.  Whether paint, pencil or pixel your artistic translation will remain uniquely you and represent your skill and passion as an artist.  The art is yours and so are the accolades, comments and profit.  The online gallery exhibition will be this Fall of  2022.  This gallery will sit alongside a growing literary based art gallery.

You are also invited to send me any art inspired or based on published or unpublished literary work you admired.

Visual art can be both complex and simple, but with either interpretation it is beautiful and does more than exists as an exhibit for sight.  Art has a voice that speaks, it has a touch that is felt.   Art has a scent and emotions that leave the canvas much like literary art it leaves the page.

Art is as unique as the individual.  This is true for my novels (literary art) and your traditional art.

I love art and I love all forms of artistic expression beginning with visual art based on books, or other literary work, and I want to inspire you to create your visual work of art inspired by any aspect of my novels.  That art I will display online in  a Novellarts gallery.  The gallery will be open to online critique and top submissions will travel with me to publication.

Your art will convey your interpretation of my novels and become a focal point of discussion for your skill, you as an artist and for my novels.

Here are the brief guidelines for your submission:

1) All submissions must be created and dated after you have registered, purchased and read at least one of the three fiction novels or  the memoir

The February Triumph (memoir), The 44th Amendment: The American Way (2024) La Razza Di Trenta Nove: The Race of 1939 (2023) by Patricc Fortiori.  Art subject matter may include any aspect of the artist’s translation or interpretation of a single novel, the compilation of the novels or the author.
