[poetry excerpt from my full length poem Vox]
Tonight is the Visions of Verse show opening at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, Washington — our summer home. I am represented as a poet and an artist in this collaborative show which is a huge honor as the local talent in the Methow Valley is off the chart incredible!!! That’s not false flattery either. The Valley has a rich and diverse art community. It’s a little mind blowing at times.
This piece is hanging in the show and was my response to a poem by another poet:
[The Mountains We Are Made Of Neckpiece :: copper, sterling silver, Oregon beach stone and Snake River of Idaho river rock]
If you are in the Methow Valley this weekend, you should head on over to the Confluence. This isn’t a show to miss. I wish I could be there in person as this is my first official participation in a fine art gallery exhibit! I’ll pour a glass of wine here tonight and maybe nibble on a cracker smeared with goat cheese while I mutter some fancy art jargon under my breath in celebration (actually, I don’t know any art jargon, I may have to Google some highfalutin phrases). Yahoo for me! And thanks to Nicole who is a wonderful gallery director. She hangs some awesome shows, people, some truly beautiful awesome shows.
