Patricia Brown (painting)
& Lisa Harris (poetry)


Counting is a product of a close collaboration between visual artist Patricia Brown and poet Lisa Harris. Harris's poems are a series of meditations on the numbers 0-12. Brown’s drawings and paintings, created while a dancing model moved to the poems, expand and explore words coming to life. Counting is the first chapter in the book Traveling Through Glass, Cayuga Lake Books’ first poetry and art publication. A poetry reading and artist talk will take place during CAP's Spring Writes Festival.

CAP Juried Group Show

45 artists of all mediums including painting, sculpture, fiber arts, ceramics, photography, collage, and a surprise or two! Going beyond who? and what?, this exhibit also asks the artist why? Robin Schwartz, CAP program director says “I am always interested in why artists create their work, and hope this show will enhance our understanding of what motivates their process by having them elaborate on what inspired them to create a piece!”
