I'm excited to be showing recent small works at an Iowa City institution, Prairie Lights.
Jen P. Harris: Contrapuntal Hitch
The Times Club at Prairie Lights
15 South Dubuque Street
Iowa City, IA 52240
January 5-February 1, 2015
Reception: Friday, January 23, 6-8pm
Times Club Editions will publish a catalog, which includes color reproductions of works from the show alongside a wonderful essay by New York City-based fiction and arts writer, Jessica Lott.
Iowa City was designated the world's third "City of Literature" by UNESCO in 2008. As a lifelong admirer and friend of literature (and writers), I am super pleased about the opportunity to hang my work in the very place the local literary society met through the 1930s, hosting Carl Sandburg, Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, e e cummings and others. Today, the bookstore hosts an internationally known reading series, "Live from Prairie Lights."
Contrapuntal Hitch was organized by Times Club curator, Sarika Sugla.
Happy New Year!
