ART Poetry and Literary Series

The Separated at birth, poetry and theater was reunited with the new poetry reading series featuring Western New York writers. 


The 2013-2014 season introduced several literary events to ART. Open readings, a book fair and a ladies night of poetry. It once again expanded our mission statement to expand the arts to our ever growing audience


Last season a diverse group writers such as Jeffrey Charles Naish, Fred Whitehead, Eternal Pleasure, John Cuitto, Tara Havern, Sinead Tyrone, Bruce McCausland, Shawnell Tillery, and Mark C LLoyd shared poetry and prose to enthusiastic audiences on open reading nights. No Frills Publishing House Writers joined us for a one night book fair to read and do book signings. In January eight talented women came together to read from their works for two nights of three hour shows hosted by Buffalo’s talented Kim Piazza. 


2014-15 saw another lineup of outstanding poets contribute an outstanding series of poetry and spoken word artists.


ART/WNY will try to continue to present the Literary Series in the 2015-16 Season with a new lineup of poets and spoken word artists.


Know the literary ART in you!
