Temiskaming Palette and Brush Club Visual Poetry Exhibit "Meet the Artists" Reception Tomorrow Night!
I can't wait! I haven't yet seen the exhibit, so I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful painting and poetry combinations that my artist friends have come up with (and to seeing how my own paintings look as part of the show)! Some of the artists also wrote their own poems, which just shows the depth of creativity that some people possess!
The reception is also the official opening of the Spring Pulse Poetry Festival which is based in Cobalt, but has events occurring all around Temiskaming Shores as well.
This is the second year for the festival, and for the collaboration with artists and poets, and I hope it will become an annual fixture!
The Festival was started by Dave Brydges in honour of Dr. William Henry Drummond, Canada's first national poet, and Cobalt's first doctor.
I do hope to see you at the reception, and perhaps at some of the poetry readings and other activities that will be going on this coming week!
