The Art of Poems

July 9, 2019 By megan-harrigan

The North Shore studio’s poetry group proudly unveils their second poetry book The Art of Poems. Rich in language and artwork, the book features 15 poems accompanied by original works made by studio artists.

“It’s beautiful. I like the poetry book because it makes us feel like we can express ourselves.” -Nikole Heusman

The poetry group, led by long-time volunteer Cindy Shanker, worked together weekly to select artwork to base their poems on. They then worked collaboratively to craft each original poem and select the most poignant works to feature in their book.

The first edition of this 34 page, full color, bound book is limited to 50 copies. At $25 each they are selling fast, so get your copy while you can!

“You know why you want to buy it? It’s because we did a good job with it! It talks about stories about our art. We talk about all different things.” -Russell Copenharve
