Please join me… in Seattle

You are cordially invited to join me at the opening of an exhibition of my found poems at Peter Miller Books in Seattle.

The announcement reads:
“It is an honor to present our show for May: Orchestrated Light by J.I. Kleinberg. A collection of visual poems that span subjects from memory to light, some are haunting, all are lyrical, all are brilliant. They represent a remarkable, intuitive artistic sense, and are ever a clear signal of the powers of Judy Kleinberg.”

Rescheduled from its original launch in May 2020, the show will run through May, with two events planned:

Opening celebration on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, 5:00-7:00pm
First Thursday Seattle Art Walk on Thursday, May 5, 5:00-7:30pm

I’ll be there for both and would be thrilled and honored if you would join me. Please come. Bring friends. Spread the word.

Peter Miller Books is located in Pioneer Square, on Post Alley between S. Main and S. Jackson Street. (The bookstore is fabulous, but there’s nothing about the gallery or events on the website. Leave a comment if you have questions, or contact the store.)

Counterflow, a new annual online journal out of Canada, has included two of my found poems in its inaugural issue, for which I’m exceedingly grateful. You can view/download the PDF on the Wordstorm publications page.

something different

I’m hugely pleased, and somewhat surprised, to find my piece, Twenty-three clues about mortality, in the “Comics” category of Anomaly #34. I’m also very grateful to editor Nick Potter, who encouraged me to swerve. While this may not be illustrated in a comics-y way, it is a sort of sequential visual narrative and I’m happy it has a home. More Anomaly here.
