May 15 @ 17:30 - 19:00
St Ives Arts Club, Westcotts Quay
St Ives, Cornwall tr262dy United Kingdom
+ Google Map

The poems here often have the visual as a starting point. A view from a window, a domestic interior, a garden in evening, a still life perhaps; the common currencies of both painter and writer generating new ideas and possibilities. Indeed it comes as no surprise that several poems have come directly from a response to other artists'work.

LA LOBA – Enchanting the Wild: Susan Taylor, Jade Moon & Carolan Gizesinski

May 17 @ 19:30 - 21:30
St Ives Arts Club, Westcotts Quay
St Ives, Cornwall tr262dy United Kingdom

£6

The poems are a summoning of the spirit of the wolf and represent that, often uneasy, border between humans and wolves, looking mainly at the positive benefit of wolves, as they have been, for instance, in Yellowstone Park. The wolves in La Loba’s pack are Mexican ones though, so the work strays into the domain of the colourful La Calavera Caterina and her magic. There is drumming, chanting and even some howling aboard this one!
