Nymphs and Shepherds Come Away:
Ten Women Artists Respond to Secular Themes from the Renaissance

January 9 to February 13

opening reception: Saturday, January 9 at 6pm

At our new location in the Floataway Building.

In anticipation of Poem 88's Annual Valentine's Salon, this exhibition is inspired by the Henry Purcell pastoral song, "Nymphs and Shepherd Come Away," circa 1692.

Poem 88 artists In Kyoung Chun, Judy Henson, Carol John, Julia Kjelgaard, Sharon Shapiro, Hannah Tarr, Zuzka Vaclavik, Nancy VanDevender, and guests Faith McClure and Cynthia Farnell explore images and themes from the Renaissance including Classical mytho-logy, love songs, paintings and architecture. Images of gods and humans, metamorphoses and seductions, and renewed considerations of the natural world showcase the formidable talent of each artist.

Fri, Feb 12, 7 pm
Valetine's Salon

Join us for an evening of poetry and music featuring Harmonie Universelle (Catherine Bull and Daniel Pyle) in a concert of music by Henry Purcell and his contemporaries in England — songs, and chamber music with strings and flutes. Poets include Kevin O'Gara, Justin Barisich and Robin Bernat among others. Our special Pink Punch will fan the flames of love. A suggested contribution of $10 strictly supports our musicians.
