  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 St. in Malden) runs through June 1, and the public is invited to a reception on Thursday, April 28 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

  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 Sears and co-organized with David Chia. Artists and poets from five area towns are represented in the exhibit. The Malden artists and poets are Linda Dolph, Emily Goldhammer, Peg Kane, Yana Lapaix, Ose Manheim, Cassandra Peters, Sharon Santillo, Liz Scorsello and Stephanie Stigliano.

  Exhibit hours are Monday through Wednesday from noon to 6:30 p.m. and Thursday from noon to 8 p.m. Friday appointments can be made by emailing anne@umaverse.org. Gallery UMA will be closed on Monday, April 18 in observance of Patriots’ Day.

  This project is supported, in part, by a grant from the Malden Cultural Council. For more information on this special exhibit, visit urbanmediaarts.org/galleryuma.
