Woman Made Gallery Literary Series
Theme: And/Or: Oil & Water, Friend/Enemy, Sink or Swim
Date: Sunday, December 7, 2014 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Location: 685 N Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago, IL 60642
Curated by Nina Corwin
All or Nothing thinking surrounds us. We humans use dichotomy, comparison and juxtaposition to make sense of the world. While the concurrent art exhibit, "Oil and Water" features work in a variety of media, the featured poets plumb the metaphor of oil and water beyond material form into the bottomless quandaries of contrast, conflict and coexistence.
Please join us for this "And/Or: Oil & Water, Friend/Enemy, Sink or Swim" reading curated by Nina Corwin. The event is open and free to the public.
Readers include Kara Candito, Marilyn Cavicchia, Joyce Goldenstern, Sade Murphy, Carly Sachs and Jessica Walsh.
All poetry events are organized and hosted by noted writers and poets who are members of Woman Made Gallery. The current poetry series is curated by Nina Corwin and documented by Kurt Heintz. Poetry events are free and open to the public with light refreshments served. For questions please contact WMG at email@example.com.
WMG was part of WBEZ's Chicago Amplified Series from 2009 to 2012. WE are grateful to Kurt Heintz, WMG's audio recordist who has documented WMG's poetry events for WBEZ and who has continued to record readings for WMG's archives. Please visit his websites www.e-poets.net and www.voices.e-poets.net.
