Lexington Community Education presents: Poems For My Coloring Book
- A Celebration of Sound & Vision - A Reading by Marcia Steere and Music of the Wayside Quartet
In her new book, Poems for My Coloring Book, Lexington based artist Marcia Steere takes the art of the coloring book to a new dimension, incorporating poetry, paintings and dress designs into stories of love and loss that culminate in a tantalizing celebration of movement, sound, and color. Influenced by her experiences as an artist, writer, teacher and dress designer, and by her extensive travel and living opportunities both at home and abroad, Poems for My Coloring Book transports readers through a kaleidoscopic journey of vibrant colors, playful language and ethnic designs.
Established in 2007, The Wayside Quartet is based in Concord, Massachusetts. The quartet performs classical and popular musical performances at gallery openings, wedding ceremonies, receptions and adult communities throughout Greater Boston. The group is made up of Priscilla Derananian and Kathleen Marshall on violins, Lynell Stromberg on viola, and Marian Levinstein on cello.
This event will be held at the Lexington Depot on Friday, January 4th from 7:00-8:30pm. The cost is $5.00. Please pre-register, using a MasterCard or VISA, by contacting Lexington Community Education at 781 862 8043.
