Art Show:
Personal Artistic Views, Past and Present

All are welcome to attend the reception on Saturday, Sep 6, 7:00 - 9:00 pm. Come and meet the artist, Margaret Donehoo. More will be mentioned later.
We are having a joint reception with
Gregory Byrd who will be reading from his new book of poems, Salt and Iron (2014, Snake Nation Press.) These poems evoke the landscape and placeness of Florida as well as make connections with myth and archetype. Poet Silvia Curbelo writes that "Byrd's poems embody the restless energy of the Florida landscape - Life-sized, transformative and singularly American, Salt and Iron vibrates with quiet lyricism and the backbreaking work of love and hope." Sample poems and more information are available at www.gregorybyrd.wordpress.com/salt-and-iron. Gregory will also be reading in October at the Times Festival of Reading. Books will be for sale ($15) and he will be happy to sign them after the reading.
Gallery hours are Tuesday - Friday 9:00 am - noon, and Sunday 9:30 - 10:30 am and noon - 1 pm. Entrance is free. For more information,
