October 23-December 11, 2005
A group show by three generations of painters and poets in an exhibition about painting and poetry, teaching and mentoring. Pivot Pointsaddresses the issue of influence across creative practice. It reveals interconnections of references and resemblances and echoes of style and context across generations. Each painting or poem is a unique work of an individual artist or writer, but is also part of an on-going story of teachers teaching students and students teaching teachers.
Pivot Points is above all, a beautiful show by three talented artists and poets – Victor Kord, Richard Lazzarro, Reni Gower, Sally Bowring, Beth Weisgerber, and Valerie Bogdan (painters) Larry Levis, Dave Smith, Greg Donovan, Elizabeth Morgan, Joshua Poteat and Laura-Gray Street (poets).
