Upcoming Poetry Workshop
Sunday, April. 22 & 29, 10:30am-12:00pm

Food has inspired poets throughout history. In this two-session workshop, we will explore the connection between food and poetry as we learn to hone our senses, create strong imagery, and engage our audience. We will delve into works that explore emotion, nature, and humanity through the food experience and write original material with the use of prompts, tastings, and discussions. This workshop is open to writers with all levels of experience.

About the Teaching Artist: Vanessa Young is poet and food writer whose works have been featured in publications in the U.S. and U.K. including Prick of the Spindle, Ginosko Literary Journal, Black Heart Magazine, The Monarch Review, and elsewhere.

Exhibition Highlight
Member Show: Abstraction
Fay Deng, Calligraphy I

“My art shall not only give the viewers aesthetic pleasure, but also strike a personal chord with them through history, culture, and the hidden mysteries of ancient colors and scents”

Fay transitioned from portraiture and landscape art to abstract art a few years ago. The desire to explore unbounded frontiers, the urge to break away from predetermined shapes and details, bubbled to the tip of her brush. She enjoys the freedom, the boldness, and the ability to write mysterious fictions using her colorful and powerful strokes, leaving room for one’s own interpretation of history and life experiences. There was no turning back.

Abstract art gives a freedom that is not easy: it depends upon discipline and intuition. Impulse, internal cues, and natural flow are important in Fay’s art.

Fay’s formative years in China and traveling around the world gave her a sense of history and millenary traditions that permeate her work. At times, calligraphy, music, antiques, renaissance, ancient temple or Maya ruins from her life experience hide in her paintings. They rest in deep layers, in quiet corners, and in unexpected elements of the composition.

Fay has a Masters of Art and Ph.D. in Engineering from the University at Buffalo, State University of New York. She has continued her art training with Rulei Bu, Deanna Schwartzberg, and Bryan Jernigan. Fay has presented her work in group exhibits in New York, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, North Carolina, and Texas, and is very excited about her first international solo show in Beijing coming up in August, 2018.
