Visual Poetry
The premise is that when we use images, it is a visual expression of an idea. It can be rhythimcal. It can have structure. It can be symbolic.

We hope it arouses strong emotions because of its beauty or its message.

We create images imbuing them with understanding and meaning be they abstract or representational.

As with many venues, the Atlanta Public Library is working with a limited budget. This year, they will only be able to provide a few posters.  Their budget doesn't allow for a printed postcard. They will provide an email version, however. Also their reception budget is reduced and we will plan on helping by bringing additional food.
