Word - Art Show - March 16 - April 15

This year, in order to recognize National Poetry Month, the Canton Artists' Guild will sponsor the third biennial Word-Art show. The show will run at the Gallery on the Green in Canton from March 16 through April 15. The opening reception for the show, to which the public is cordially invited, will take place from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, March 16.

The concept for the Word-Art show is to explore the synergy between writing and the visual arts. The show will include paintings or sculpture that incorporate text or were inspired by the written word. It will also include written pieces inspired by visual arts as well as pieces of video art, dance, or theater. The show will include an Evening of Readings on April 14 from 7:30 -9:00 p.m.and the publication of a chapbook of the written work.

Running concurrently with the Word-Art show at the Gallery on the Green second floor gallery will be work by painter Robert DelRusso. The show, entitled "Fields of Grass and Water- Impressions of Cape Cod and Connecticut", will include recent oil and gouache landscapes in DelRusso's luminous, impressionistic style.

Also running concurrently In the Spotlight gallery on the second floor will be a show on new work by artist Susan Bradley. Bradley uses a mixed media: collage, watercolor and acrylics, to create highly evocative and dreamlike imagery. The opening reception for the both second floor shows will take place from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, March 16.
