PII Gallery and Dave Worrell Seeking Poets and Writers

From Dave Worrell

pii

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/

Dave WorrellTo get booked for this event please contact me by the end of June so we can you include your name in the publicity materials. daveworrell13@yahoo.com

CATHERINE KUZMA 
& DAVE WORRELL

Close to Home

PII Gallery is pleased to present a show of paintings and poems by Catherine Kuzma and Dave Worrell, respectively. To Kuzma, painting is a meditative process, each painting a conversation, communion with a creative power documented in color and impressions. In her most recent series CLOSE TO HOME, she celebrates local landscapes and patches of nature that have survived suburban development in southern New Jersey.
When Dave Worrell first saw the paintings exhibited in CLOSE TO HOME, he felt drawn into a very familiar world. The poems that have emerged from Dave’s contemplation of Catherine’s paintings evoke a South Jersey landscape much impaired by human encroachment, yet still retaining isolated spots of beauty and tranquility: the yet-lingering consolations of the natural world through which flashes of the eternal shine through.
April 3 – 25
