The line-up for the next 6-Minute Escape video series has been announced.

The Arts Council Haliburton Highlands and Haliburton Reads and Writes Committee are behind the initiative, scheduled for May 14 at 7 p.m. on YouTube.

The night will feature texture artist Kathleen Dewar with Honouring Earth’s Beauty; Danielle Martin, owner of Shape Shifter, with Intertwining the Realms of Art and Spirit; artist Marcia Mandel with Turtle Magic; digital artist and photographer June Krisko with Experience the Haliburton Seasons; author Marie Gage with Trail of Tears; artist Rosana Dewey with Reflections; and special guest Canadian/Nashville singer songwriter Linda McRae with Singing River.

The event will be co-hosted by librarian Erin Kernohan-Berning and museum director Kate Butler.

Kernohan-Berning said, “This program will provide us all with a much-needed escape and allow us to witness, first-hand, the transformation these brilliant artists bring to our world.”

After the seven short videos are broadcast, viewers are invited to their online after party, where video presenters will be available virtually for questions and answers.

Butler said, “Although we cannot mingle in the same room, we will have the opportunity to chat with these brilliant artists.”

There is no cost to attend the launch. However, any donation would be greatly appreciated. It will help the Arts Council support arts, heritage and culture within our community. To donate, go to their GoFundMe link: gofundme.com/f/6- minute-escape.
