Literary Event: Women Writers on Women Artists

Explore the intersection of art and poetry with NMWA.

Celebrate National Poetry Month during this presentation of work by three poets who took inspiration from art and artists in NMWA’s collection.

Karren Alenier will share poems about artist Marie Laurencin, her paintings, and her relationships with Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Pablo Picasso, and others.

Jo Ann Clark will read from her suite of poems From the Loggia of Alba Agatha Mims, which took inspiration from both the subject and tone of Renée Stout’s Seven Windows.

B.K. Fischer presents selections from St. Rage’s Vault, a pregnancy memoir that unfolds through poems about the visual arts, including works by Alice Bailly, Louise Nevelson, and others on view at NMWA.
