At the intersection of poetry and painting: West Edge artists prepare reading for Thursday Night Trolley tours


West Edge Art Co-op

When Pam Atchison and Jan Pettiet envisioned the Thursday Night Trolley tours, they were hoping for something like this, I believe.

In a project called Standing at the Edge, poets will write artful responses to several pieces of visual art that are on display in the West Edge gallery. By the way, I think the art in that gallery is highly worthy and worth everyone's drop-in time.

Writings chosen by a panel of poets will be recited by the authors when guests visit the West Edge Artists' Co-op on the Trolley Tours, says Carlos Colon.

To write your responses or simply to enjoy a visit, go to the gallery, 725 Milam, Tues - Fri, 10 - 6 and Sat, 10 - 4.

Representatives of Standing at the Edge will be present from 5 - 7 pm on Fri, June 8, to answer questions. Among them: Becky Haigler, Pamela Raintree, Michael Parker and Laura Flett. Email your entries to pamraintree@yahoo.com. Poetry chosen will also be published in a chapbook, says Colon.
