April is National Poetry Month

In honor of National Poetry Month we are exhibiting our collaborative artwork with Richards poetry, at Erna Ferguson Library.

Richard’s Corner

I had two comedy events in March, the Reptillion Lounge sponsored by Tricklocks Revolutions International Theater Festival on March 10 and Comedy Fight night at The Drafty Kilt on March 30 where Richard and Rusty Rutherford put up a good fight.

In April, I look forward to comedy open mics during Vicki’s art show in Oklahoma City during the Festival of the Arts.

Author: Vicki Bolen, Little Bird de Papel

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
