Marilyn Couch, Nadine Charity artist talks at Artspace Shreveport on Thurs, July 16, 5:45 pm and 7 pm

Calanthean Canyon, Airlift Shreveport Residency

Critics from distant parts of the US were imported by Shreveport Regional Arts Council last month to evaluate works by local artists. Among those anointed by the merciless interlocutors from remote shores was poet Nadine Charity. Also bonafide was painter Marilyn Couch.

The event, called Critical Mass, produced displays of work at Artspace Shreveport, 710 Texas St. It also results in artist talks. Enjoy both on Thurs, July 16, 5:30 to 8:30 pm.

5:45-6:45- Artist’s talk by Marilyn Couch
7:00-8:00- Artist’s talk by Nadine Charity

Charity's poetry exhibit is a hands-on experience. She says, "I'm using layers of work. You have to touch the poetry to see it." Pardon me? "I love poetry but I hate poetry shows. I don't want to have to read poetry off a wall." The result of her thinking about that is a clever technique that draws the reader's hands to the wall to explore mysterious print.
