In A Different Language: An Art & Literature Exhibit

The Cure for the Common Reading and Cure artist Andy Wiles are pleased to announce a cross-over exhibit guaranteed to come crashing down upon the Wilmington arts scene like a sack full of rabid Easter bunnies!

"In a Different Language" is an art/literature exhibit that will pit a host of talented poets and fiction writers against the artwork of local artist Andy Wiles. Our writers were given access to Andy's work and asked to write a staggering work of brilliant splendor (yeah, we went there!) inspired by his art. The result of this "old west challenge" will be on display at Parallelogram from June 1 - June 12, with a reading held on Sunday, June 6.

Both the art and the writing will be on display for the entire period.

For Cure fans, this will be another chance to see/hear more work from your favorite Cure writers. It will also give you the chance to encounter some work from new writers.

For art fans, this will be an opportunity to come to a unique art exhibit, have some shenanigans and jump on the Andy Wiles bandwagon.

The writers who will be having this bare-knuckle brawl with Andy's artwork are:

Dan Bonne
Anne Branigin
Jeff Carney
William Coppage
Corinne Manning
Jason Mott
Randy Skidmore
Cheryl Wilder

So, please, make plans to come down to Parallelogram on Sunday, June 6th to see what happens when art and the written word have the proverbial "throwdown in the school yard!"
