“Lines Connecting Lines” exhibit gives images to words through the month of May

“Lines Connecting Lines” is an exhibit of poetry and visual art charged with enhancing the enjoyment and understanding of both art forms. Poems hang side by side with paintings, drawings, prints and photographs made in response to area poets’ work. The exhibit at Gallery UMA (145 Pleasant Street, Malden) runs through June 1.

This exhibit is inspired in part by this year’s Malden Reads book selection “An American Sunrise,” by Joy Harjo. It is hosted by Gallery UMA, curated by Lisa L. Sears and co-organized with David Chia.

Artists and poets from five area towns are represented in the exhibit. Malden artists are Linda Dolph, Emily Goldhammer, Peg Kane, Yana Lapaix, Ose Manheim, Cassandra Peters, Sharon Santillo, Liz Scorsello, and Stephanie Stigliano. Malden poets are Kathy Fischer, Anna Geoffroy, Christopher Hickey, Jason M. Rubin, Felicia Ryan, Lisa L. Sears, Jeff Taylor and Rachel Woodring.

Exhibit hours are Monday – Wednesday, noon – 6:30pm and Thursday, noon – 8pm. Friday appointments can be made by emailing anne@umaverse.org. Gallery UMA will be closed on Monday, April 18 in observance of Patriot’s Day. For more information on this special exhibit visit urbanmediaarts.org/galleryuma.

This project was supported, in part, by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
