FEATURED PERFORMER 6/10 Willy Gantrim & the Phantoms "...stopped in our tracks by Willy Gantrim, who was playing solo acoustic in the front of the cafe. He recalled a cross between Dylan, Deer Tick and Tallest Man on Earth - a potent and awesome combo. Rocking a pseudo-pompadour, Gantrim had a mysterious air about him, and his dusty South Western Americana songs ... were excellently crafted and executed in an honest and humble manner."

FREE COLLAGE WORKSHOP

A Gathering of the Tribes presents: Poet-run collage workshop June 6, 2010 from 2-4 pm

Open to everyone!!! FREE Tribes Gallery 285 East Third Street, Manhattan 212.674.3778 info@tribes.org

Coinciding with a show of poets’ collages curated by Bruce Weber, Tribes Gallery is sponsoring a one-of-a-kind special free workshop!

Join poet and master collagist Jeffrey Cyphers Wright for an afternoon of fun and learning. Wright is part of a long-tradition of poets who do collages. He studied with Alice Notley at St. Mark’s Church. His collages have been included in magazines and art exhibitions.

Materials such as rubber stamps, markers, glue and images will be provided but participants are encouraged to bring extra images. At the end of the workshop you will be able to take your creations home.

Valery Oisteanu, the poet and noted art historian will join Wright. Wright and Oisteanu have curated several collage shows together and both write regularly for The Brooklyn Rail. Other poet/ collagists in the show include Star Black, Lewis Warsh, Steve Dalachinsky, Yuko Otomo and Bruce Weber.

So come and enjoy an afternoon of hands-on, ‘make your own & bring it home’ work of art with experienced and acclaimed writers and artists. Stick around after the workshop for the Opening Party for the Poets in Collage exhibition on view now at Tribes Gallery!

*The events were made possible by Salon 94, David Hammons and Capital One Bank *
