THIS WEEK: February 5 – 11, 2014
JACKSON, WYO – FRIDAY 2.7
Art, poetry and dance
When Gallim came to Jackson for its summer residency, Dancers’ Workshop encouraged artists and writers to attend open rehearsals. More than 40 attended and created work inspired by the dancers. Some of that work will be on display with the dance company’s return to Jackson. The gallery exhibit, This is a Box, features work by artists like Bronwyn Minton, Tom Woodhouse, Steven Glass, Melissa Malm and Jocelyn Slack. All of the pieces were not only inspired by Gallim, but also have incorporated a cardboard box, said Buckstaff.
Friday will also mark the release of a book of poetry featuring 16 writers whose pieces were influenced by Gallim, some sketches created by inspiration and blank pages for people to add their own musings. – Kelsey Dayton
