The Drew Friedman Art Place at the Westport Book Shop
Westport Book Shop is partnering with the Drew Friedman Community Arts Center to feature different local artists' work at the Book Shop every month.
Our featured artist for the month of January 2022 is Diane Meyer Lowman
Literary and visual artist Diane Meyer Lowman is exhibiting a group of nine original haiku poems, each superimposed on a photograph taken by Diane, mostly in Westport or nearby.
Diane explains, "I love both the simplicity and complexity of the haiku form. They've become a daily ritual for me, like journaling. Both the photographs and my state of mind inspire and influence them."
Diane is a poet, author and essayist. Her essays have appeared in many publications including O, The Oprah Magazine; Brain, Child; Brevity Blog; and When Women Waken. Her memoir, Nothing But Blue, was published in November 2018. Shortly thereafter, she received her M.A. in Shakespeare Studies from the University of Birmingham's Shakespeare Institute. In July 2019, she was named Westport Connecticut's first Poet Laureate.
Diane's artwork will be on exhibit at the Westport Book Shop through January 31, 2022.
Earlier art exhibitors at the Book Shop include Nina Bentley, Norm Siegel, Katherine Ross, Miggs Burroughs, Holly Hawthorn, Diane Pollack, Joanie Landau, student artists from CLASP Homes' art program, Susan Fehlinger, Leonor Dao Turut, and Fruma Markowitz.
