Announcing the Second Annual
Sacramento Writer's Brush
What did Charlotte and Emily Brontë have in common with Kurt Vonnegut and Sylvia Plath, besides writing? Come find out at the second annual Sacramento Writer’s Brush event.
Can’t wait for the answer? Here is a hint: They all used both sides of their brains, the right to create art and the left to write. Some of our greatest writers were also artists. Sylvia Plath’s mother once told her she had to learn to write as well as she drew. Some writers even achieved a separate fame with their artwork, such as Lawrence Ferlinghetti did for his paintings.
In the tradition of these literary greats, the second annual Sacramento Writer’s Brush features local writers/artists Jennifer O’Neill Pickering, Frank Andrick, Lawrence Dinkins, Sue Owens Wright, Jeanine Stevens, Frank Graham, Tim McHargue, Susan Kelly DeWitt and others in an art show and reading of their literary work. The art show is eclectic and includes the art mediums of collage, video, photography, painting and, of course, writing.
This Second Saturday event will be held on January 8, 5-9 p.m. (reading 6:30-7:30) at the Sacramento Poetry Center, 1719 25th Street (25th and R Streets), Sacramento. The art will be on exhibit during the month of January. Admission is free.
