DISCLAIMER: The Second Tuesday Open Poetry Reading is facilitated by Jim Villani.  I’m just an attendee trying to help get the word out… it is a small group, we need more people. This post has not been “approved” by anyone. Button image below is from YBWorks, my little button biz, and not the name of any local poetry anything. I’m adding it just for grins because if I don’t add a photo in this post, a default image will pop up when shared on social media. Please see the Facebook event page if you need a map or more information.  Thank you!

NEXT READING:  September 8, 2015 (location to be announced)

Metamorphosis

I hopped the last bus tonight to go see the “No Reason” show at the Metamorphosis Gallery, located at 2 State Street in Struthers (across from Los Gallos), and ended up enjoying a couple hours of art and conversation.

It is a cool place. I wasn’t sure how the night would go having never been there before, if I would feel comfy enough to break out the pencils and hang out for awhile in an “open studio” environment with other artists there, each doing their own thing, but it was okay. Actually better than okay.

Thanks for reading!
