Visual art meets poetry; one more trolley tour for 2006
By Heidi Masek

• Poetry, paint, dance: What’s Ekprhastic art II? It’s the second installment of poetry, dance and visual art interaction from artstream studios, 56 North Main St., Rochester. The project of the Poetry Society of NH and artstream began last year. Poets wrote poems inspired by visual artists’ work last year, and this exhibit features visual art inspired by words from 25 poets. Poems will be read Sat., Nov. 11, from 7 to 9 p.m. and Elysium Dance Project from Rollinsford will perform interpretive dance from the poems. The art exhibit continues through Jan. 2.

• Gypsy party: The abstract art of Eva Maria Lee will be featured at this month’s Dream Farm Cafe, “musical soirée, art show and café” at 64 Dow Road, Hollis, Sunday, Nov. 12. Bring your own wine. Coffee and dessert are served at 6:30 p.m. and the gypsy jazz trio Ameranouche starts at 7 p.m. Ameranouche blends Spanish guitar, eastern European music, jazz and pop. The suggested donation is $15 for adults or $10 for children. DreamFarm Café events are facilitated by DreamFarm Creative Arts, a nonprofit New Hampshire organization. Make reservations by e-mailing or call 465-7997. Give 48 hours notice to cancel reservations.

• Last chance: Get your last free Open Doors trolley tour of Manchester open studios for the year, Thursday, Nov. 16, from 5 to 8 p.m. A good place to start is Manchester City Hall. Visit for a list of venues and a map.

• Business of art: The State Arts Council and MicroCredit-NH, along with the NH Business Committee on the Arts, will finish up their workshops for the year with a seminar called “Taxes and Financial Management for Artists” Nov. 15, from 3 to 5 p.m. at 2½ Beacon St., Concord. The workshop is free, but you should register by calling 271-2789. The seminar will cover guidelines for record-keeping, tax deductions and financial planning. The State Arts Council is planning more such workshops for 2007.

• Funding the arts: The Currier Museum of Art has received a $450,000 challenge grant from the Kresge Foundation of Troy, Mich., for The Campaign for the Currier to support the 30,000-square-foot expansion of the Manchester art museum. The Currier has raised $11.2 million of its $13.4 million goal. The museum must raise nearly $1.8 million in new gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations by Dec. 31, 2007, to receive the Kresge challenge funds. The Kresge Foundation, with $3 billion in assets, is one of the few national foundations that makes grants for bricks-and-mortar projects.
