Featuring the poetry by five poets from the metropolitan area and the printmaking of artist Edward Fausty, A Summer Spoken For: the sound of ground breaking in Poetry combines two art forms that seem to go hand-in-hand but are rarely seen together: Spoken Word and Visual Art. The exhibition focuses not on illustrating visually what the poems convey but on capturing the exact visual essence of the text: bridging the gap between misconceptions that the written word on canvas is any different than paint taking shape on the same medium. Poets included are Marty McConnell, John Survivor Blake, Julian Stockdale, Jessica Elizabeth Nadler and Hollace M. Metzger. Selected works by the poets will be printed and typeset by Edward Fausty and displayed on the walls of the gallery. The opening reception will be held on Friday, July 11th at 7 PM and features dynamic readings by each poet of the works displayed. The exhibition is on view from July 11th through August 2008 at the Brennan Gallery, 583 Newark Avenue, Jersey City. The gallery is ADA accessible. This is a free event.
