KAA Vision Verse poster
The KAA Poets featured on our Spotlight Wall are a group who meet monthly led by Portsmouth Poet Laureate Emerita Kimberly Cloutier Green...and poetry is their art!

Other artists participating in this show have expanded their talents to include a haiku, a few lyrics from a piece of music, or maybe a tiny but treasured verse from a favorite piece of literature to their art work.

If you love poetry as well as visual art, then this is the exhibit for YOU!  
ARTISTS:   Art Work Pick Up is Monday, May 7th, 4-6 PM
Monotype Printmaking Demo at KAA
Thursday, April 26, 2018, 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM
Member $10.  Non-Member $15 

You're sure to be impressed by this spectacular Printmaking Demo with Annick Bouvron-Gromek taking place at KAA from 6:30 to 8:30 PM on Thursday, April 26th!

Monotyping is an intriguing hybrid among printing techniques.  It's neither a print nor a painting, but a unique combination of both.

Annick Bouvron-Gromek
Annick in her studio
Annick is a member of the Seacoast Artists Association and the New Hampshire Art Association and has won numerous awards for both monotypes and watercolors.
