The Union Gallery is hosting a poetry reading event on Saturday, September 30, 2017 from 4:30-6pm in celebration of Culture Days and the Kingston WritersFest. This event is free and open to the public.
Selected poets were asked to reflect on a significant moment in their lives. This could take the form of a memory, a lesson learned, or a physical object. When we as individuals enter an experience of something in our lives - much like when entering a new destination - we rarely exit in exactly the same state of mind.
The Union Gallery will be exhibiting Espace plausible ; Plausible Space by Mathieu Léger in the Main Space and THE IMPOSSIBLE BLUE ROSE by Lisa Lipton in the Project Room during this event. The exhibitions create commentary on the experiences of travel, place, and identity, which thematically link the poetry readings to the works.
Poets: Michelle Allan, Travis Canadien, Allison Chisholm, Alyssa Cooper, Alex Dawson, Shauna Haugen, Chuyue Jing, and Devon Runions.
