The showing is free and open to the public. The Merging Visions reception will be held on April 15th from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. to celebrate the exhibit’s opening.    All poems and artwork are originals created by members of the two groups. Some of the poems are created with the artwork as inspiration, and some are inspirations for the artwork.

Guest Post With 2 Poems from Annie Neugebauer

Annie Neugebauer’s blog post today sets a fitting tone for Americans who are reeling from the events in Boston, MA and West, Texas this week. Our hearts go out to the families of victims and first responders. Welcome Annie and thank  you for your words of consolation.

Hey guys,

It feels weird to continue on in such horrible news. First Boston and now West, which is a small Texas town about an hour and a half south of where I live. Everyone I know is sad right now, myself included. These are days to go dark, spend time with loved ones, and reflect. But of course I have no control over the timing of tragedy, so I hope you’ll understand where my heart is when I share my news and publications with you.

[I’m no expert, but I imagine that unless you’re a first responder or a trained disaster relief worker, staying away (physically) is probably more helpful than driving down to West right now. Last I heard they have serious traffic problems with all of the emergency vehicles. The best information that I’ve gathered, if you’re in the area and wanting to help: you can donate blood at any of these locations or donate funds to The Salvation Army. If you’re around Denton, you can also drop off water and goods at UNT.]
