In their Aldrich exhibitions, artists Lucia Hierro (Marginal Costs) and Hugo McCloud (from where i stand ) create vivid portraits of people – without ever showing a single face! Poetry does the same in words. Come “paint” poem portraits of the people you know with Barb Jennes, Aldrich Educator and Ridgefield Poet Laureate, using tools like imagery, hyperbole, and allusion.
