Raleigh, NC, March 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Alice Osborn and Adam Cave Fine Art invite the public to celebrate Alice Osborn’s new book of poems, Unfinished Projects, published by Main Street Rag Publishing Company, on Thursday, March 24th at Adam Cave Fine Art (115-1/2 East Hargett Street, Raleigh, NC 27601) in downtown Raleigh from 7:00-9:00pm. Wine, cheese and other light refreshments will be served. There’ll also be door prizes and giveaways. Adam Cave Fine Art is housed on the second floor of 115-1/2 East Hargett Street, a 110-year old building. Adam and Cindy Cave opened this gallery in 2008 which features 26 emerging and established painters, printmakers, photographers and glass artists.
Adam Cave, owner and founder of Adam Cave Fine Art says, “I am of the opinion that an art gallery should be far more than just a place to purchase fine art. Our gallery strives to be a cultural center where artists, art lovers, and patrons of all the arts can come together and share their experiences. We are proud to host this poetry reading for Alice Osborn, a truly gifted local poet, as part of our ongoing efforts to serve and broaden our cultural community.”
Homer Hickam, author of Rocket Boys/October Sky and The Dinosaur Hunter, says:
“She uses words like a master potter—molding the clay of the mind into vessels that hold not things, but life, place, and time.”
David T. Manning, author of The Flower Sermon, says, “Alice Osborn convincingly shows us in the poem ‘Challenger 7,’ how tragedy, both national and personal, is elevated to a cosmic/spiritual domain where the Pleiades mourn the tragedy in the astronauts’ own ‘living room’. There are many scenes in this most intimate collection that will live long with the reader.”
Born in Washington D.C. the winter after Watergate to a French mother and a civil servant father, Alice Osborn came of age in Charleston and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. She is a graduate of Virginia Tech and North Carolina State who served as a ROTC cadet, waitress, makeup artist and high school teacher. Alice Osborn uses all of her experiences now as an instigator of writing happenings and as a creative writing teacher to students ages 9-90. Her work has appeared in Raleigh’s News and Observer, The Pedestal Magazine, and in numerous journals and anthologies. She lives in Raleigh, North Carolina, with her husband and two children.
