Text & Textiles

This traveling exhibit represents twelve collaborations between poets, invited by Alice B. Fogel, poet laureate of NH, and artists from the Women’s Caucus for Art, NH Chapter. The exhibit is curated by Kate Dean and Kate Higley.

The collaborative partnerships were chosen by the poets from among member artists who volunteered for this series of events in September 2017. The term “textiles” is very loosely applied and the artists involved are free to do work in any medium.


Special events are being scheduled for each location, where artists and poets will talk about their work, the process, collaboration, innovation, and inspiration as a presentation and Question and Answer session. STAY TUNED!

Hancock Town Library, May 12-June 20
Pease Public Library, Portsmouth, June 25-July 30
