In between writing blog posts on Thursday (which was National Freelancers Day #NFD2013), I stopped at the Picasso art exhibit in downtown Raleigh. If you are in the Triangle area, you only have one week left before the exhibit is over!
Held at Gallery C, the small free exhibit showcases original drawings and lithographs. “Peintre Chauvre Devant Son Chevalet” (pictured right) was made in 1927. I liked the art-within-art quality of this piece and I am now writing a poem about it. This is just a section of the etching, see the full Picasso etching.
Picasso was quite the creative. I went to a larger (temporary) exhibit a few years ago at the Nasher in Durham where they showcased his poetry. Surprised me: He wrote over 300 poems!
This was my first visit to Gallery C, a gorgeous historic home in Raleigh’s Oakwood District. Located just across the street from Krispy Kreme, PieBird, and the new Station (Yes–it is open!), and the also new So & So Book Store. Try and check out the art before the exhibit closes on November 30th. Living Poetry has a Meetup scheduled in the final hours it is open.
