Michael Hoffman's painting for the Invitational is in

I am very delighted to report that Michael Hoffman has completed this beautiful piece for the 2009 Poetry Scores Art Invitational. It's titled:

"the concrete vault on its thousands
of tonnes of height, far above the tidal turnaround".

Like all of the pieces being made for the show, its title is drawn from the poem The Sydney Highrise Variations by the great Australian poet Les Murray.

In recent years Michael and Alisa LaChance have hosted our Invitationals at Hoffman LaChance, but their new location is a bit small for our needs. So this year, we are doing it at The Luminary Center for the Arts, which is a really amazing space across from Tower Grove Park and just down Kinshighway from The Royale.
The Invitational is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 13. All work will be for sale on silent auction, with proceeds split three ways between the artist, the venue and Poetry Scores, a Missouri nonprofit that translates poetry into other media.
