With partial funding from Poets & Writers and NYS and the support of Hudson Park Apartments, Blue Door Gallery is pleased to present these dynamic additions to our cultural programming for the communty:
ARTSPEAK: Poetic Response to the Walls Writing Workshops
Facilitated by poet-in-residence Golda Solomon, a spoken word performer, supporter of emerging poets, performers and musicians and a Professor of Communications, Speech and Theatre Arts. Blue Door Gallery's exhibitions inspire workshop-developed poetry.
PO' JAZZ: Combining poetry with the smooth sounds of jazz
Po' Jazz is an innovative partnership of poetry and jazz created by Golda Solomon, who has combined her two passions to create an energetic program featuring established and emerging poets sharing the stage with a small group of jazz musicians, blending the spoken work and improvised instrumentation.
and we have gathered some of this poetry into NARRATIVES x4 , TIME & TIDE, and NEW WEAVES chapbooks available for sale in our store.
