Poetry & Prints

Poetry month is drawing to a close but the Library at Watkins, Watkins Community Education and Handmade & Bound Nashville 2014 will continue to celebrate poetry, books and the print arts with the Poetry & Prints gallery show and community workshops.  Inspired by the work of Russian artist Vasily Kandinsky and the retrospective of his work hosted by the Frist Center, September 26, 2014 through January 2. 2015, Watkins Community Education is hosting a series of community book arts workshops.  Professional book artists, poets and printmakers will teach workshop participants how to create their own books and fill them with the poetry and prints they create.

The artists’ books created by workshop participants will be displayed along side works created by invited working artists in the Poetry & Prints gallery show in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film.  Join us Friday, October 3, 2014, 5-7 pm for the opening and reception honoring the participating artists.  Then come to the Handmade & Bound Nashville 2014 Festival and Marketplace, Saturday, October 4, 11 am- 4pm on the Watkins campus 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard, Nashville, Tennessee.

“Whan that aprill”

Chaucer was right.  The “sweet showers of April” are one sign of Spring, along with National Poetry Month and the first stirrings of Handmade & Bound Nashville.  The Academy of American Poets suggests one way to celebrate: take a poem out to lunch.  Handmade & Bound Nashville celebrates Spring and Poetry Month by announcing the dates for the fourth edition of the Handmade & Bound Nashville festival and marketplace of artists’ books, zines, printmaking and more.
