San Pedro, CA 90731
(enter the gallery on 4th Street through the loading ramp)
September 5 – October 26, 2019

In “Places Without Walls” artist Terry Braunstein and poet Dinah Berland engage in a call and response intermingling of image and text, with Braunstein’s initial photomontage serving as the ignition point for a poem by Berland, which Braunstein then uses as a resource for her next collage. The poet and artist continue alternating until the sequence culminates in an assemblage of pieces that can stand alone in their oscillating logic and yet simultaneously amplify each other’s cohesive vision.

On Sunday, September 15th, the Michael Stearns Gallery will host a special convergence of poetry and art at the Loft. Collage artist Terry Braunstein will give a talk about her work at 2 p.m., followed by a reading of poems by Dinah Berland at 3 p.m. The reading will take place in a studio adjacent to the Stearns that is the current workspace of artists Linda Fry and poet Bill Mohr. Seating will be provided.

Doors open at 1 p.m., and the gallery and studio will be open until 5 p.m.
