Between Word & Image, a juried exhibit of art by members of PaperWorks: The Sonoran Collective for Paper and Book Artists, is now on display at the Poetry Center until August 12. The works in the exhibit incorporate diverse media (digital output, handsewing, hand printing, letterpress, 2D collage, pamphlet, coptic, cards, sculpture, concertina, codes) and are inspired by nature, culture, memory, home, poetry, music, immigration, documentation, global communication, the alphabet, narrative, and more.
We’re celebrating the exhibit with a reception this Thursday, June 4, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. The reception will begin with a gallery talk from the show’s jurors. We invite you to come by then, or any time during our open hours from now through August 12, to view works celebrating the image, the word, and their intersections.
Summer Creative Writing Workshops
We’re offering a great summer schedule of creative writing workshops! In each of our workshops, you can expect to create work, acquire new writing skills, expand your literary awareness, and meet like-minded fellow writers. We’re offering courses in writing theprose poem, memoir, and fiction, plus a course in transforming your writing through letterpress print; this last course takes place in the University of Arizona’s amazing Book Art and Letterpress Lab. Register for a workshop here!
A Year to Remember
The 2014-15 year of programs and events at the Poetry Center was one to remember! We brought nationally acclaimed poets and artists to Tucson and Phoenix, supplemented the education of students of all ages, and contributed in countless other ways to the cultural life of Southern Arizona. Check out this album on our Facebook page for some highlights of the past year.
Summer Closure: June 22 through 26
During the week of June 22 through 26, we will observe a library closure. Among other things, during this closure Poetry Center staff will be focusing on preparing for a great upcoming fall and spring of programs and events for you! (In that spirit, pictured above is a bird’s nest in progress, photographed at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.)
