Wine and Rhyme: An Art That Nature Makes + Complimentary Wine Tasting & Guided Poetic Response

Wine and Rhyme: An Art That Nature Makes + Complimentary Wine Tasting & Guided Poetic Response
One Night Only! Tuesday, February 25
  • Finding unexpected beauty in the discarded and decayed, photographer Rosamond Purcell has developed a body of work that has garnered international acclaim.
  • Purcell's work has graced the pages of National Geographic and over 20 published books, attracting admirers such as Jonathan Safran Foer, Errol Morris and Stephen Jay Gould.
  • AN ART THAT NATURE MAKES details Purcell’s fascination with the natural world – from a mastodon tooth to a hydrocephalic skull – offering insight into her unique way of recontextualizing objects both ordinary and strange into sometimes disturbing but always breathtaking imagery.

Directed by Molly Bernstein
Runtime: 75 mins
Rating: NR

Complimentary Wine Tasting in Lobby before event (6-7pm). Film at 7pm.

The screening of the film will be followed by a guided poetic response facilitated by poet Vasiliki Katsarou. By allowing visual art to be a springboard toward poetry, this is a creative exercise in drawing connections between art forms. Haiku and other short poems will be generated in the spirit of Allen Ginsberg's "first thought, best thought." Let your creative spirit shine in a friendly, supportive environment.

Vasiliki Katsarou is a poet and filmmaker. She read her poetry at the 2014 Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, and is affiliated with New Jersey's Hunterdon Art Museum. She holds an A.B. Phi Beta Kappa in comparative literature from Harvard University and an MFA in filmmaking from Boston University. Her award-winning 35mm short film, Fruitlands 1843, is about a Transcendentalist utopian community in Massachusetts. She is the author of a full-length poetry collection, Memento Tsunami, and a chapbook, Three Sea Stones (forthcoming by Lucia Press). She is also co-editor of two contemporary poetry anthologies: Eating Her Wedding Dress: A Collection of Clothing Poems and Dark as a Hazel Eye: Coffee & Chocolate Poems. Her poems have been published widely and internationally, including in NOON: Journal of the Short Poem (Japan), Corbel Stone Press’ Contemporary Poetry Series (U.K.), Regime Journal (Australia), Mediterra nean Poetry (Denmark) as well as in Otoliths, Poetry Daily, Tiferet: A Journal of Spiritual Literature, Wild River Review, wicked alice, Literary Mama, La Vague Journal, and Contemporary American Voices.
