“The Fire in the Wood” An exhibit of sculptures by Edmund Kara & poems and drawings by Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, which are included in the drama, “The Fire in the Wood” by Peter Thabit Jones.
Friday, May 18 was a festive opening at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts, with my reading of two poems and excerpts from a prose piece, all inspired by Edmund. David Wayne Dunn, cherished friend, and artist, photographer, poet, and musician, accompanied me. The exhibit is in conjunction with the drama, “The Fire in the Wood,” which is about the life and inspiration of the late and iconic sculptor, Edmund Kara, with his life also as archetype for the creative process. The exhibit runs through June 16, 2018. The drama had its west coast premier at the Henry Miller Library on May 19 and will show at the Carl Cherry Center the first 2 weekends in June. I encourage you to attend both the exhibit and the drama!
