Visiting poet hosted by Port Angeles Fine Arts Center

PORT ANGELES — Love and creativity, loss and memory are the currents that run through Barbara Hazard’s poetry, to be offered Wednesday at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd.

Admission is free to the 7 p.m. reading, which will highlight poems from Hazard’s recent book Wednesday River.

Hazard, who has lived in Berkeley, Calif., for 40 years, is visiting friends in Port Angeles this week.

The “Strait Art 2012” exhibition of work by artists from Port Townsend to Port Angeles will provide a vivid backdrop to her reading at the fine arts center.

Hazard is herself a visual artist as well as a poet and holds a master’s in art therapy from Lone Mountain College in San Francisco.

Her summers in St. Petersburg, Russia, yearly travels to the St. Lawrence River region between New York state and Ontario, Canada, and her childhood on Long Island all inspire her art and poetry.

For more details about this and other events at the fine arts center, phone 360-457-3532 or visit PAFAC.org.
