Dear Missoula Cultural Aficionados,
It's Jack Metcalf here to broadcast another upcoming event. For better or worse. This time less zany, more subdued . . . well maybe.
So we here at Real Good Art Space are hosting two separate bodies of work that both are . . . how do you say . . . poetic. Granting March the umbrella title:
"Poetry: Double Feature"
March 6th 2015 // 6-10 PM
Real Good // 1205 Defoe St #1
Across from the Clay Studio, behind the yellow creepy van.
PART 1 - On display in the main space will be new work from Jennifer duToit
Title: We touch still, always.
Jennifer duToit was born and raised in Butte, Montana. She graduated with her BFA from U of M in May of 2013, focusing in Printmaking. Her work, at present, develops from themes of memory & spoken word. Her pieces often take on various forms of poetry and short fiction, alongside installation-based print-media. Currently, she resides in Helena, Montana, working for the Helena BID and AERO. She is focusing her creative efforts on the build-out of a mobile studio and blog venture titled Small Tin Press, set to hit the roads of Montana summer of 2015.
I sleep; we wake. You eat; I leave. We work, we clean, we cook; and we sleep again.
Our limbs move forward; we close doors, open windows - graze new pavement. And, year after year, we turn gray. This is it.
Go to sleep, but please wake up; touch me still always.
PART 2 - On display in the auxiliary gallery are excerpts from Jacob Kahn's soon to be released book of poetry "A Guidebook To And For Giants" accompanied by illustrations by Jack Metcalf. A poetry reading from the book will occur at 9 PM by a Jacob Kahn impersonator.
Beverage and snacks will be provided, and live printing with the new letterpress.
As always, thank you for your time, and I'll see you there!
