In conjunction with our current exhibitions, The Virginia Glass Guild 28th
Annual Exhibition and Through the
Looking Glass: Introspective Studies of Glass and Video by Charlotte Potter at
The Charles H. Taylor Arts Center in Hampton, we are sponsoring a Poetry Inspired
by Art event.
Poets are invited to write a poem inspired by one of
the artworks in the exhibition, followed by a poetry reading here in our
galleries. The poems would also be posted adjacent to the artworks, with the
permission of the artist. They will also be available in notebooks for perusal
by our visitors.
Poets could photograph the artwork or work here in our
galleries beginning Sunday, December 13, at the Opening Reception and up until
Sunday, January 10. Hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10-6 and Saturday and Sunday,
The Arts Center will be closed
December 24 and 25, 2015 and January 1, 2016 for the holidays. When you have
completed your poem, please email it to me in the form you wish, at least 12
point font and as a WORD friendly document attachment. CHTAC reserves the right to reject any
submission for any reason, at its discretion.
We will be hosting
the Poetry Reading of these poems Sunday, January 10 at 2:30 pm, here in our
Virginia Glass Guild Juried Exhibition
This 28th annual juried
exhibition presents the many forms of glass created by members of the Virginia
Glass Guild. The VGG, originally established in 1986 as the Peninsula Glass
Guild to promote quality art glass in the community, is a membership
organization of glass artists working in Virginia. The PGG was renamed the
Virginia Glass guild in 2015. The exhibition offers a wide range of creative
processes, including blown, carved, cast, painted, flame worked, fused, leaded,
neon, sandblasted and stained glass. Juror, Diane C. Wright, the Barry Curator
of Glass at The Chrysler Museum will select and present $3,750 in cash awards
Charlotte Potter was the Peninsula Glass Guild 27th
Annual Juried Exhibition First Place Award Winner in 2014, entitling her to
this one person exhibition.
We hope you will
participate and invite you to contact your poet friends who might also be
interested. You may reach me at email@example.com
or 727-1490 with any questions.
Our last reading event of the year! Come out and get your
festive spirit on with us! Over the course of the evening, local wordsmiths of
all experience levels will give us a “taste” of what they do in five minutes or
less. Live music is an integral part of the mix, with the likes of Super64
playing some jaunty sets & providing musical accompaniment to any poet so
desiring. Want to join in the fun? Make sure to get on the list! Find me early
in the evening or get in touch beforehand.
Freewrite Tuesdays at Sub Rosa!

Don’t let your writing get lost in the busyness of the
season! Resolve to spend some quality time with your muse every week with us.
This group’s purpose is to create a cozy and informal venue to freewrite and
converse-- we believe writing doesn't have to be a solitary sport, and that you
never know what inspiration might walk through the door. Although we're open to
specialized topics and sharing, there is no formal critique or workshop agenda—
simply show up & be ready to write!
