Ekphrasis with A Narrow Fellow on the radio hour + this weeks events

This Thursday on artXfm at 1pm I’ll be chatting with Mark Lee Webb and Deborah Hazlett about their collaborative efforts on the newest issue of A Narrow Fellow.  Mark, the editor of Narrow Fellow, selected N D Hazlett to create works of art based on the poems selected for the issue.

“Deborah Hazlett enjoyed fifteen years of costume work in New York, where her experiences ran the gamut from shopper to dyer and painter to designer’s assistant to costume designer. As a member of USA Local 829, she had the pleasure of designing and styling clothes for over thirty television, film, theatre and commercial productions. Today,she applies her design talents to dressing up the pages of the theatre journal TD&T and books published by Broadway Press. Her award- winning paintings have been exhibited in regional and national shows in and around Louisville, KY.”

The release party for the event is this Friday, 7pm, Open Gallery. Event PAGE
