Solitary Spin - Poetry Spun into Art

23 of the area’s most accomplished artists illustrate poems from a new book of poetry by Akron resident Barbara Sabol. The result is magical!

Twenty-three local artists have created artworks based on the new poetry  book, Solitary Spin by Barbara Sabol. 
This show will be a combination of a gallery show of artworks and book launch for a new poetry book publication.
Barbara Sabol will be reading poems from her book at the artist reception on April 13th at 7 pm. The exhibit represents a marriage of visual art and poetry, created by some of the most accomplished  artistic talent in the area.
