A Poetry Exhibit with Adrienne S. Wallner
February 20th-March 3rd
@LOLA Gallery, 4262 County Rd B, Land O’ Lakes, WI
Free and open to the public
Local Northwoods Poet, Adrienne S. Wallner, author of “To the 4am Light”, shares this special poetry exhibition with LOLA Arts. From journal scribblings to the polished poem, “Pages & Poems” allows for an intimate glimpse into the author’s writing process. In this unique exhibit, viewers are invited to page through collections of journal entries, revisions, and feedback assembled to reflect the journey of each displayed poem from inspiration to completion. Also featured are images of several journal covers adorned and decorated by the author.
The exhibit includes twelve hanging scrolls with the text of 9 poems from Adrienne’s poetry collection, “To the 4am Light”
Featured poems include:
“To the 4 a.m. Light”
“Judith in my Living Room”
“4th of July Family Reunion”
“Surveying the Damage”
There will also be ten “pages” booklets composed of the journal pages and revisions for the corresponding poem. These are hung to the left of the poem in such a fashion that they can be picked up and paged through by the viewer, then placed back on the hook. It depicts the process of compiling her manuscript, submitting, and the publishing process.
