March 7 - April 18, 2013
Opening Reception: Mar 7, 8-10pm
The Distillery Gallery is pleased to announce "The Rally."
This event celebrates the collaboration of the So & So Reading Series and Rope-a-Dope Press from 2007-2009 by bringing together poets, publishers, printers, and artists from the Distillery in South Boston and across the US to collaborate in creating poetry broadsides and presenting contemporary poetry in a gallery setting. Focused on merging different artistic mediums, the broadsides create a conversation between literature and visual art. The end result is a poetry reading in the Distillery Gallery amid collaborative poetry broadsides created with Rope-A-Dope and Rye House Press.
Participating artists' solo work will hang alongside the broadsides and the collection will be displayed through the month.
