A total of 32 paintings and 32 poems are hanging in the show....two paintings by each artist and two poems by each poet. One poem and one painting (examples below) interpret the others artwork/poetry creation.
Photos from hanging the Painted Poetry Show at Surf City library on August 1st. From the left below, the hanging crew included Paul Hartelius, Chuck Person (not shown), Carol Freas, Richard Morgan and Willy Mueller.
The Painted Poetry reception and poetry reading was held on Wednesday night, August 16th, at the Surf City branch of the Ocean County Library.
There was standing room only with 85 in attendance!
After an hour of meet and greet, great refreshments and a chance to view poems and art, Richard Morgan started the program, displaying each artist's two paintings on the screen, then calling up each corresponding poet to read one of their two original poems while the audience viewed the artist interpretation of that poem.
The popularity of this 4th annual event continues to grow

Little Egg Harbor Library - Lee Fricke's Reception
Here are the artists prepping and trying out the lesson to take to the Rehabs in our community. Linda Saladino (standing), also, Joyce Echochard, Cathy Ronnie, Julia Costa, and Pat Pellitier.
It is the outreach group at PSAA that goes out to the residents at the rehab hospitals and shares an art lesson two hours a month. It is a great activity and very rewarding for the artists and the residents.
Congrats to another successful year to the POP group!
