The exhibit launched with an artist talk, followed by readings by featured poet Heidi Greco. Recently declared one of Surrey’s “Civic Treasures,” Heidi Greco is a firm believer in the power of the word and of the literary arts. She’s been published in genres from book reviews and essays to short stories and essays and even a novella. Her most recent book, Flightpaths: The Lost Journals of Amelia Earhart, is from Caitlin Press.
At the evening’s Open Mic, I read Two In Every Square, from my New Rozalia suite of poems. Other readers included Natasha Sanders-Kay and Graham McGarva, both from TWS 2017.
Much gratitude to White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin and Semiahmoo Arts Executive Director Barb Nelson for their opening presentations and kind words! And much thanks to White Rock Manager of Cultural Development Bev Siver, and staff Wendy and Heidi, for guiding me through the process of putting on my first solo art show! Huge thanks for Melanie Watts of Semiahmoo Arts for her masterful install and constant encouragement.
