My poem, “What Lot’s Wife Would Have Said (If She Wasn’t a Pillar of Salt),” is featured in the current SOIL Gallery show, with interpretation by artist Daniel Smith. Check out the Stranger Suggests!
Jen Graves from The Stranger did a nice write up about the show, included below. Come hear the visual artist’s speak and the poet read this SATURDAY NIGHT. FREE! SOIL GALLERY. 7pm. Or, just check out the gallery show during SOIL’s open hours.
SOIL’s Loose Leaf: Artists and Writers Make Books Together features three groupings of image makers and word assemblers: Julia Freeman with Stacey Levine, Daniel R. Smith with Karen Finneyfrock, and Ellen Ziegler with Patti Smith and Frances McCue. Freeman gives three-dimensional and darkly cartoonish ballast to Levine’s words, heightening their grand strangeness (feat!). Daniel R. Smith adapts Finneyfrock’s withering poem What Lot’s Wife Would Have Said (If She Wasn’t a Pillar of Salt)—she’d have said, fuck you, Lot, and fuck you, bigoted God—into shrewd photographs. And Ziegler invites you to stand under an upturned, disintegrating umbrella, where poems and light rain down all around. (SOIL Art Gallery, 112 Third Ave S, 264-8061, noon–5 pm, free) by Jen Graves
