2FAN at Hearne: Lewis, Hobbs, Catlett and haiku




Samella Lewis/
Elizabeth Catlett/
and LaToya Hobbs

That's five/seven/five and would qualify for a very lame haiku. You can do better tonight at Hearne Fine Art, which is celebrating Poetry Month with an invitation to write haiku with Candrice Jones from 5 to 8 p.m.
Surely the inspiration: woodcuts and serigraphs by the artists above. Lewis (primarily a printmaker who is also an authority on African American Art) and Catlett (her work is in MOMA and the Metropolitan) are known far and wide; Arkansan LaToya Hobbs will be in the future. Hearne is at 1001 Wright Ave., across from the Sue Cowan Williams public library.

Here's another try:
