Thank you to everyone who came to hear Amy Bagwell discuss her art last Thursday in Ross Gallery.
Bagwell spoke about various influences in her life, poetry, and art, including School House Rock’s The Tale of Mr. Morton, Fred Sanford, E.E. Cummings, and Joseph Cornell. Audience members were treated to impromptu poetry readings as she spoke about specific pieces in the room, then enjoyed a strong discussion on the role poetry can play in art.
Amy is undertaking other efforts to increase the visibility of poetry in our community with the Wall Poems of Charlotte project, which creates murals of poetry throughout town. Check out their latest installment on the Dandelion Market building at 5th and Church in uptown Charlotte.
Stay tuned for more announcements of artist lectures throughout the summer.
