The Westport Book Shop welcomes literary and visual artist Diane Meyer Lowman as its guest exhibitor for the month of January, at the Book Shop’s Drew Friedman Art Place. Diane’s art exhibit includes nine original haiku poems, each superimposed on a photograph taken by Diane, mostly in Westport or nearby.
Says Diane, “I love both the simplicity and complexity of the haiku form. They’ve become a daily ritual for me, like journaling. Both the photographs and my state of mind inspire and influence them.”
Diane is a poet, author and essayist. Her essays have appeared in many publications, including O, The Oprah Magazine; Brain, Child; Brevity Blog; and When Women Waken. She has written a memoir, Nothing But Blue, published in November 2018. Shortly thereafter, she received her M.A. in Shakespeare Studies from the University of Birmingham’s Shakespeare Institute. In July 2019, she was named Westport, CT’s first Poet Laureate. Diane’s essays can be found at https://dianelowman.substack.com/
Westport Book Shop, a nonprofit used book store, is downtown Westport’s only source for used and antiquarian books, vintage vinyl records, and other media. It is located at 23 Jesup Road, right across Jesup Green from the Westport Library. The art exhibit is open to the public during the Book Shop’s business hours: Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays from Noon to 5 p.m. (closed Mondays). Diane Meyer Lowman’s work will be on exhibit through January 31, 2022.
The Book Shop’s “Drew Friedman Art Place” is an area of the store dedicated to exhibiting the work of community artists year-round, on a rotating basis. Miggs Burroughs, a Trustee of the Drew Friedman Community Arts Center, and a founding member of The Artists Collective of Westport, is curating these exhibits, which change monthly.
This event is free of charge.
