‘Word Meets Art’ is now in its third year, and has become a popular addition the the Guenzel Gallery Salon party. In addition to complimentary refreshments and readings of original works by local poets, Isadoora Theatre Company will present vignettes from their upcoming play, “The Dinner Party,” written by Neil Simon, and directed by Henry Timm. The party and exhibition is free and open to the public.

Executive Director Cathy Hoke-Gonzales, is pleased that so many writers have participated in the past. “‘Word Meets Art’ arose because so many local artists not only create visual art, but also create literary works of art. Extending the Salon party to include the art of spoken word is timely and has deepened the level of participation for local artists,” she says.

Prospectuses for both the Salon exhibition and Word Meets Art readings are available at the School or online. For more information about this event and other Peninsula School of Art workshops, exhibitions, and community programs, call 920.868.3455 or email
