Title: Other Conversations and Gearbox Poetry
Dates: Nov 18th
Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

On Sat. Nov. 18, there will be a poetry reading from 2 – 4 pm, with an open mic sign-up starting at 1:30. Richard Loranger will read from his book, “Sudden Windows”. This is the premier of “GearBox Poetry”, which we hope will become a monthly event. This is organized by David Zeltzer, dzeltzer@acm.org.

“Other Conversations” will juxtapose the AbEx influenced paintings of Irene Nelson with the eccentric assemblages of Frances Lerner. Both artists share a conviction in the values of their intuitive processes.
