Crab Creek Review joined the Kingston Art Gallery at the Second Saturday Gallery Night on May 9th. The Gallery is currently featuring the work of printmaker/artist, Marilyn Liden Bode and potter, Betty Claire. Marilyn and Betty shared the stage with Crab Creek Review staff, who read poetry from the Fall/Winter 2009 issue, which features Marilyn's linocut/collage, We Are The Reason Our Ancestors Existed, on the cover (Marilyn's linocut/collage is currently on display at the Gallery). Poetry Editor, Lana Hechtman Ayers, Creative Non-Fiction Editor, Jennifer Culkin, Editorial Assistant, Ronda Broatch, and Co-Editor, Annette Spaulding-Convy read selected poems from the latest issue and then joined the Gallery's artists and art-loving members of the Kingston community for an array of homemade appetizers and creative conversation. Former Crab Creek Review Editor-in-Chief, Natasha Moni, also joined CCR in celebrating the release of the current issue at the Gallery.
Crab Creek Review would like to thank the Kingston Art Gallery (http://www.kingstonartgallery.com/) for graciously hosting our reading and for selling copies of the Fall/Winter '09 issue. Special thanks to Marilyn Liden Bode for inviting the CCR staff to read and for enthusiastically letting CCR use her linocut/collage on the cover of the current issue.
Here's to many more evenings of poetry, art, good food, and inspiring conversation in Kingston!
