MCS Exhibit and Gel Print Classes with Nancy Staszak

Hope to see you tomorrow at 6pm!  I have a number of poets scheduled to read their collage-dedicated poems.    We had a number of submissions for this event. And we’ve had so much positive patron (and staff!) response to the gorgeous work on display as well!  Just a note: not all the art pieces have a dedicated poem, and some actually have more than one dedicated poem, due to having two/three different poets choosing that same piece – unbeknownst to their colleagues.  It will be very interesting to hear how the poets respond to the art through poetry!  And it’ll be great to meet both groups of creative talent!!!
In celebration of National Poetry Month, join us for a poetry reading inspired by collage.  
Readings begin at 6pm -- Join us in the atrium area by Gallery 777
Light refreshments, great art and poetry to be served!
