We would like LARGER pieces, but need a minimum size of 11x14 framed.

 Origami Poetry Event 
Sunday was our first ever..to my knowledge, poetry reading here at the gallery.  I am so sorry for those who love poetry and did not attend. As it is we used every chair... I had had a long day/ night beforehand and came and all I can say is... it was like a rare treasure that I found... Imagine if you will...walking along a beach looking for shells or seaglass, which you love and collect  but instead you stumble upon a chunk of pure gold...with a worth beyond your dreams or imagination.  Well... that is what happened to me.  How fortunate I am to have attended.  But you... treasure seekers..there is always the next time.  We are starting up a monthly Sunday eve poetry night where poets and visual artists collide and something incredible happens... want in?  Think you missed it and you are too late??? Ahhh, you could not be more wrong.. we WANT you and your artistic voice.. all you have to do is inquire..
Let's get together...
