HAIKU WALK & WORKSHOP

SPECIAL EVENT:

John D. MacArthur State Park

Saturday, October 22nd

 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public, but there is an admission fee to the park.

We’ll meet at the amphitheater by the nature center.

Haiku is one of the oldest poetic forms with its roots in Japan. It is still extremely popular today the world over.

We will start with a brief workshop: what is haiku, the guidelines for writing it and some examples of traditional and contemporary poems.

You will then be free to venture off on the many lovely trails the park has – perfect inspiration for writing nature based poetry!

We will meet up for a picnic lunch (please bring your own food and we will provide water and soda).

After lunch we will have a reading and share our haiku.

So, please join us for a fun day of poetry and explore the wonder of nature at John D. MacArthur State Park with your fellow poets.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Cyndee at mimacyndee@yahoo.com

Visit the park’s website at www.macarthurbeach.org for information regarding entrance fees, a map of the park and more.

BIG NEWS for Lake Park, FL!!!!

 

Here is the latest from AJ Brockman, “The Brewhouse Gallery has so much good news flying around on a daily basis that things sometimes get lost. That being said, this week marks one of the most incredible opportunities we could have ever hoped for. This is not a joke so please prepare yourselves, We have purchased an entire CITY BLOCK! That’s right, the team behind Brewhouse Gallery has taken the next step in revitalizing Lake Park and building something special by taking over ownership of the whole building. This includes bringing back the Mos’Art Theater (or as some of you may remember it the Kelsey Club). At this point we are all in… All in because we believe in what this area is becoming, the amazing support we get from all of you every day, the staff (or family as we like to say) behind us, and the ultimate vision of building a community”.

 

 

 

 

“Now, the real work begins. The sort of work that will ultimately change history. In this work we need your help… So please spread the word on what we are doing, scream it if you have to. We have a bunch of retail spaces available and we would love to hear what sort of project you might be interested in bringing to the scene. Keep an eye out for some brainstorming sessions and community forms in which we want feedback from all of you. We truly could have never imagined this journey and outcome in only a few short years, but it’s possible because of all of you and that can’t be said enough. The future is now, let’s do this!!”

 

 

 

MEET OUR GALLERY ARTISTS:

Thursday, November 19th 6 – 9 pm

 

 

Kevin Goff ◊ AJ Brockman ◊ Emmanuel Gonzales ◊ Troy Miessau ◊ Erin Link ◊ Dawn Everett ◊ Craig McInnis ◊ Phil Carlucci ◊ Derek LaRosa ◊ Brad Cain ◊ James Chambers ◊ Richard Dickhaus ◊ Johnol Jones ◊ Matt Baran ◊ Nicole Galluccio ◊ Diane Hutchinson ◊ Phil Fung ◊ Artist Don
