As part of our 20-18 Written Word Out Load Series Art on Main is pleased to host a poetry reading by Vermont poets, Kristin Fogdall and Jari Chevalier. Join us in the intimate setting of the gallery to hear these two nationally published poets share their work with us, followed by refreshments and an opportunity for conversation.
