Explore locally-focused and multi-disciplinary creativity this weekend. On Saturday, September 13, book shop Before Your Quiet Eyes (439 Monroe Avenue), will host an art reception as well as a poetry reading. Approximately 25 poets will be present to read their work from the Mo' Joe: An Anthology book, edited by John Roche. More than 100 poets contributed imaginative interpretations to the growing legend of Joe the Poet, an elusive wandering bard and time-traveler who sometimes appears as 'Josephine,' or other incarnations. The event will also feature art by neo-surrealist Randy Dunham, who explores energy, refraction, and reflection in his prismatic paintings of floating water droplets and other objects set amid shifting terrain.
The event is free to attend, will take place 4 to 9 p.m., and will be sign language interpreted. For more information, call 563-7851 or email BFYQUE@aol.com.
