From Dave Worrell
The Philadelphia International Institute gallery (PII) in Old City, Philadelphia, (242 Race StreetPhiladelphia, PA 19106) is looking for poets and creative writers of all kinds to take part in its August 7 First Friday opening event. The gallery show will feature abstract paintings — so if you have poems or prose pieces that are a little bit out there (or a lot), we want you. This is your chance to let that wild side off the leash for a while — more or less within the limits of the law, of course. No need to write anything specifically for the occasion — just bring your most imaginative stuff.
We anticipate a sizable crowd so we may not be able to give folks more than a minute or two — sort of fast-moving tag-team marathon concept. Sometime in July, you will be able to see some of the paintings on the PII website. http://www.piigallery.com/
To get booked for this event please contact me by the end of June so we can you include your name in the publicity materials. firstname.lastname@example.org
