Enjoy art, poetry and some pre-Halloween fun at Erie Island Coffee.

Althea Jones Art will be putting on this wonderful event so stop by for some coffee, art and a great night!

For almost 200 years Edgar Allan Poe has been a literary force. His macabre stories and poems fascinate the world and stir the most exotic emotions associated with death.

Like many, I read Poe as a school girl and was struck by the darkness of each work. More recently, I was compelled to revisit his work and was therefore inspired to create pieces based upon the emotions and ideas I was lead to.

I spent hours and days reading, listening, writing and painting. What has resulted is a labyrinth of poems, thoughts and art works all leading back to Poe.

This collection of works will be displayed at Erie Island Coffee Co. in Rocky River, Ohio during the month of October. There will also be an artist reception on October 12, 2019 at 6:30pm.

During this reception I invite viewers to learn more about Poe's work and to explore the emotions that are uncovered by the art they are experiencing. Viewers will also become participants as they create their own are and poetry with my help.
