This Thursday, June 6th, friends of the Main Street Art Gallery will present ‘Journeys: an exploration through photography and poetry.’
The show of fifteen artists will include works of poetry, photography, and stained glass. Many photos and poems were inspired from one another as the creation of the show developed over the past few months. The theme, Journeys, travels through each of the pieces as the flight of birds, into the horizon of the ocean, and with the words of wishes.
The participants gathered together by this invitational show have varied backgrounds. Talents range from amateur photographers and poets to West Virginia’s poet laureate, Marc Harshman.
Enjoy a short presentation of the work with the artists at the show opening. The artist’s reception begins at 5:30 on June 6, 2013. Light refreshments will be served. Music offered by pianist Joe Jancura and trombonist John Gruber will play between the conversations of artists taking visitors along their artful journeys of today.
Participants: Amy Bergdale, Coty Cole, Kellie Cole, Phil Cole, Leah Ettema, John Gruber, Sue Gruber, Marc Harshman, Bill Hogan, Josie Pickens, Brad Schrum, Nikki Sothoron, Ben Steffl-Thompson, Melanie Steffl-Thompson, James Wodarcyk
