Northern Stage Artists’ Reception
Northern Stage’s Lobby Artists Program offers an opportunity for local and regional artists to exhibit visual arts in two Barrette Center for the Arts’ lobby areas: The Roesch Family Lobby and The Upper Lobby. Lobby art rotates on a regular basis and is selected to contextualize the onstage work at the Barrette Center for the Arts. This may manifest as a metaphorical reflection of the themes of the season or a more literal representation of the particular shows or ideas. We hope this program is a gift to our community, allowing visual artists’ work to be viewed by our patrons, while providing those patrons with another cultural touchpoint that is relevant to the work onstage.
Featured artists: Shari Boraz, John Kantack, Matthew Sergeant, Craig Sterritt, and Sandra Williams-Crossley.
Special Feature: Poetry Open Mic
Our Poetry Open Mic will feature Deming Holleran, reading poems from her book Gypsy Song (published 2015) and will also bring poems authored by Elizabeth Bishop. We invite everyone to bring your favorite poem to read.
