A sample collaboration from last year's exhibit:

"Clockworks"
a linocut by Lori Biwer-Stewart

 

"My Brother's Death"
poem by Chuka Susan Chesney


He is like a broken clock that is still ticking.

He is a moon that stares faceless
out into the darkness,
and the night after he died, I felt
him whisper in my ear.

He called no one.
He is a magic trick
that is about to disappear
under the card table.

He is a puppet
whose strings are pulled
by the troubled branches
of dead, snarled trees.

I saw handprints
of the blood of wild mustangs
dancing down the hall
where he staggered and leaned
on his death march toward heaven.
