If you have an opportunity, please stop by to visit the exhibit of which I am proud to be a part of. Two of my poems have been selected to be interpreted into visual arts by local artists. I haven’t seen the pieces yet, but I am very excited to see what they came up with. I hope that you can drop by and support the local arts scene.
“Lines Connecting Lines,” an exhibit of poetry and art, will be on view at MATV Gallery (145 Pleasant Street, Malden) March 17 through April 24. This collaborative project began with selected poems by local poets that then inspired area artists to create paintings, photographs and prints as an interpretation of the written into a visual form. Poems and artworks will hang side by side to enhance and extend the vision of each. All are invited to an artist reception on Thursday, March 26 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm when poets will recite poems from the show and artists will be on hand to discuss their works. MATV Gallery is open to the public Monday-Thursday, 10 am – 9 pm, Friday 10 am – 6 pm and Saturday 10 am – 2 pm.
