Poetry in Motion—Where I Stand
Sunday, Sept. 1 through Sunday, Oct. 20.
Poetry in Motion, in its eighth year, is Wilton Library’s annual poetry program for teens in grades 7 – 12. This year’s theme is Where I Stand. This can be interpreted figuratively or literally. Students are invited to submit original poems (serious or humorous; short or long). Approximately 35 poems will be selected by a student board for a two-performance event in March 2014 at the library. Poems will be paired with art, music and/or dance for the live performances. Poems can be performed by the student poet or by someone else. Submit poems as a Word document to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 20, 2013.

5 Photographers 5 Styles Exhibition Reception
Friday, Sept. 6, 6 – 7:30 p.m.
Five local area photographers feature their diverse styles and perspectives using the same medium and similar equipment. Paul Wear’s images go through a metamorphosis that evolves over time in the “digital darkroom”; Rick Locke’s photographs feature vivid colors, striking patterns and textures and unique images resulting from reflections off water or glass or by simply aiming his lens up or down; Dennis Hyde likes to capture moments of humanity or glimpses of the natural world untouched by man; Zita Mercurio sees in nature the elegance and simplicity of repeated patterns capturing the beauty and artistry of the world around her. Vince Balzano’s images are cropped to achieve balance or provide a unique perspective. A majority of the works will be available for purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the library. Reception open to the public. Exhibition runs through September 27.
