Hera Gallery and Origami Poets!

Dear Artists, Poets and Community Members,

Hera Gallery and Origami Poets will be presenting a collaborative exhibition at Hera Gallery in Wakefield from March 12 through April 16, 2011.

The tentative title for this collaboration is:

Art Into Poetry = Poetry Into Art

We are hoping that you will be part of this exhibition from its inception.

We would like to invite you to a
Planning Meeting/Pot Luck Supper/Reading/Performance at

Hera Gallery on Saturday, August 14, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

Here is the agenda for the meeting:
7:00 - 7:30 Welcome, Introductions, Supper, Performance
7:30 - 8:15 Poetry Reading and viewing artists' images
8:15 - 9:00 Discussion of the exhibition in the Spring. How can we make this the best, most engaging show possible? How can we make it the most rewarding possible for participants as well as the audience?

If you would like to participate, here is what you should do:
  1. RSVP to John Kotula
  2. If you are an artist, send John 3 - 5 images of your work which he will put into a slide show to present at the meeting
  3. If you are a poet, bring 2 - 3 poems to the meeting that you would like to read
  4. Prepare a dish to share. There are no cooking facilities at the gallery. We will supply paper goods. Bring whatever you would like to drink. There will be a cooler and ice. (John is very fond of carrot cake.)
  5. Come ready to have fun, share your work, and plan the show in the spring.
Based on the discussion at the meeting, John will complete a final description of the show and circulate it to the group for comments. It is anticipated that by the early Fall there will be a Facebook event page inviting people to take part in the project and attend the exhibition.

Let John know if you have any questions or comments. If there is someone you would like to invite to the meeting, give John a call.
