‘Poetry and Paintings’: SALA Event

I’m excited to be collaborating with Adelaide artist Priscilla Corbell-Moore for her debut solo exhibition and SALA event: Art for a Cause: Poetry & Paintings. My poems will accompany Priscilla’s paintings. 

Huge thanks to Priscilla for inviting my poetry to form itself around her exquisite paintings. I am in love with these artworks!

The exhibition begins on August 18 at Pilgrim Uniting Church, Flinders Street, Adelaide. Proceeds from sales of Priscilla’s paintings will be donated to support people who are facing homelessness.
