DEAR STRANGER.

Poet Jenny Browne and
Artist Katie Pell

 

Opening Reception Friday, April 5, 6 to 9 PM

IN HONOR OF NATIONAL POETRY MONTH, DRIVE-BY READINGS WILL HAPPEN ON THE HOUR

 

DEAR STRANGER. will present pairs of Pell's drawings juxtaposed with lines of poetry selected from Browne's forthcoming collection. Part lyrical postcard and part visual narrative, the work re-imagines relationships between images, words and people. In honor of National Poetry Month, drive-by readings will happen on the hour.

Poet Jenny Browne and artist Katie Pell first collaborated 16 years ago, teaching together in an after-school program at a middle school that was later taken over by the state.  They've remained in creative conversation ever since

Jenny Browne is a poet and professor of English at Trinity University, and the author of three books, At Once (2004), The Second Reason (2007) and Dear Stranger (forthcoming). She has received grants in poetry from the Texas Writers League and the San Antonio Artist Foundation and is a 2013 NEA Literature Fellow.

Katie Pell has lived in San Antonio since 1995. Her work describes the excruciating negotiations needed when confronting sexism, class and racism. She is funny and insensitive, pointing out her own misguided assumptions with humor and idealism. Among her proudest accomplishments are organizing the Automatic Downtown Studio Tour, participating in the Artpace International Residency Program, and drawing and painting all the while. She lives in the center of San Antonio with her man and daughter; dogs and chickens. She never complains about the heat.
