Karla Freeman’s “Nature Remembered” Exhibit and Wendy Erd’s Poetry Workshop
“Nature Remembered” new landscapes by Karla Freeman
Sept 6 – Oct 2, 2013
Opening Sept 6, 5 – 7 pm
“I have been living in Baja, Mexico for the past 6 years. I lived in Alaska for more that 40 years. When I lived in Alaska I longed for less black and white and more color. Living in Mexico where there is a lot of color I am often overwhelmed by it. It is a peaceful meditation to paint with less color. I feel lucky to know both, to go from less to more again, from North to South and back once more.
Karla is unable to attend in person, but please join us to celebrate her new work as we share her artist’s statement at 6pm.
Poetry Workshop with Wendy Erd
Writing on the Edge of Place
Sept 11, 3:30 – 6 pm
A creative writing workshop to celebrate the places we walk by on our way to somewhere else. Erd is completing a Poetry on the Trail installation in conjunction with the Islands and Oceans Visitor Center as part of Old Town AIR.
Bring a notebook and pen, a willingness to experiment and a warm jacket. We’ll write and post poems of place in the landscape of Old Town and celebrate with a group walk-about reading.
Free workshop open to all (age 14+). Practiced and new writers welcome.
