Poets, artists collaborate on "Text and Textiles"

Through January 30, the library is hosting an interdisciplinary traveling exhibit entitled “Text and Textiles,” composed of 11 collaborations between poets and artists. The pairs were determined by the poet laureate of NH, Alice B. Fogel, and the Women’s Caucus for Art NH Chapter. The term “textiles” is being very loosely applied as the artists involved were free to do work in any medium.

To learn about the work and hear the poetry read aloud, come to the library on January 27 from 3 pm to 4:30 pm for a free presentation.

Poets and collaborating artists exhibiting are:
