New Date #Poetry Night Features #KyleLeach & Jen Decker– February 1st 2018 Rochester Public #Library

The Rochester Public Library has graciously offered to host the February Writers Night. We will meet in the Community Room at 6PM on February 1st.  We’ll have a double-feature that evening, myself and the very talented Jen Decker. Each will have 30 minutes of the night. There will be an open mic to follow, but we need to put the room back in order and vacate no later than 8:15PM.
I’m so excited to be featuring again in a few weeks at Pat O’Brien’s Writers Night. Some of the pieces I plan to include are: “Blood,” “Stories,” “44-47,” “11 Minutes,” “Forbidden Words,” “Book Burning,” “Frozen,” “Our Orange Ozymandias,” “Change,” “Dissent is Patriotic,” “Lump,” “0-9,” “10-19,” “20-29,”and “30-43.” I’ll have others ready if we have time.

Iconic Women Artists Deserve A Special Place In The History Books

From the Publisher:

Historically, major women artists have been excluded from the mainstream art canon. Aligned with the resurgence of feminism in pop culture, Broad Strokes offers an entertaining corrective to that omission. Art historian Bridget Quinn delves into the lives and careers of 15 brilliant female artists in text that’s smart, feisty, educational, and an enjoyable read. Replete with beautiful reproductions of the artists’ works and contemporary portraits of each artist by renowned illustrator Lisa Congdon, this is art history from 1600 to the present day for the modern art lover, reader, and feminist.

Semi-Thanksgiving Update

I’ve added some more Thanksgiving decorations to the mix at the shop. Stan found several cornucopia shells that where the right size, so I whipped up another batch of fruits and dipped them and the finished products came out much better than I expected. As I said in my last post, I’ve received a lot of accolades for my work and now that may be translating into further exposure for my work. Some of my wreathes and trees are now in a featured area of the shop, as well as being in my booth. Also, the Goodwin Library, here  in town, is also interested in featuring my work in their display case at the center of the library for the holiday season. I still have to work out the details, but it looks like my work will be in the case by the end of next week. That’s exciting news! Thanks for the support everyone.
