Painting Foucault’s: A Year at the Bookshop

June 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us on Friday, June 8 at 7pm, for an artist reception celebrating the work of Mother Foucault’s painter-in-residence, Brooke Budy, who set up drop cloth, easel, and canvas at various spots in the shop over the course of the past year to create over forty painted views of the books, shelves, plants, and people that make up Mother Foucault’s.

In addition to the reception and exhibit, a cadre of local poets will read short works inspired by the paintings, the shop, or the shopkeeper himself:

Joanna Rose
Donna Prinzmetal
Andrea Hollander
Suzanne Sigafoos

Readers will also share the work of two additional poets who were at Mother Foucault’s and wrote about the paintings but who aren’t able to attend: Maggie Chula and Penelope Scambly Schott.
