Carrboro's Poetry as Envisioned in Clay Art: Ellen Kong's Tribute
Hey, do check this out: the North Carolina artist, Ellen Kong, created a special piece, "The Poets' Circle," images in clay of the faces of 4 poets from the Carrboro Poetry Festival. Kong's Carrboro piece is on display now, along with several more of her pieces for her showing at the Tyndall Gallery in University Mall, UNC, Chapel Hill. What a fine tribute to the CPF! And also I'd like to speculate that although I could not say with much certainty who three of the faces in the piece are, I will venture that one could easily be Kasey Silem Mohammad--see what you think! & I'm also wanting here to say good luck on the move to Oregon, too, Kasey!--as well as noting the fine write-up today on Limetree about parties and especially Alli Warren's poetry--keep on *jumpin'* Y'all!
(with thanks to Chapel Hill poet Paul Jones for sending the Ellen Kong-Tyndall Gallery link to the CPF listserv.)
