Words with Wings: Poetry & Prints

New show in the Rose Gallery through February!!


As part of a school wide poetry week, the Rose Gallery hosts artwork by various printmakers dedicated to celebrating the printed word in poetry and artist books.   The Words with Wings exhibit was curated in conjunction with the Upper School’s Poetry Week taking place February 5-9, 2018.  The exhibit showcases various methods of printmaking and artist books.  Most of the imagery contains poetry or written word, including a few broadsides of Billy Collins poems by Carolee Campbell.

There are a variety of student-made books inspired by poems around the back wall in the gallery from Ms. Taylor’s 2D Art class.  There will be an artist reception Thursday February 1 from 5:30-7:00pm where the artists will be available to meet the community.  Much of the professional work is for sale.
