Spectrum Gallery presents “Artery VIII - Art + Poetry = ARTERY
Artwork that is inspired by poetry and a special poetry reading on Sunday, September 13th at 2:00 PM.
Regional poets will include: Angie Aker, (past Poet Laureate of Kenosha) Nick Cibrario, Sam Harshner, Stephen Kalmar II, (past Poet Laureate of Racine)
Trevor Lewis, Steve Platt, Jean Preston, (current Poet Laureate of Kenosha) Carolee Saffioti-Hughs, Peggy Shimkus and Darin Zimpel
(past Poet Laureate of Racine)
They have submitted poems and artists from Spectrum Gallery have created artworks from them in a variety of media. After the poetry reading on Sunday, other poets are invited to read a poem of their own. The show also features blank newsprint lining the walls so other visual artists may create art after reading the poems. The show was instigated by past members of the Root River Poets (now disbanded) wanting to continue the “ARTERY” tradition after a few year’s hiatus. This is the 8th ARTERY in as many years at Spectrum. The show continues through October 4. Hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 - 5:00 and admission is free.
