Gallery Walk will focus on poetry, animation art

The Carnegie Renaissance is sponsoring another Gallery Walk event this weekend highlighting poetry and original animation art.

Beginning at 7 p.m. tomorrow at the 3rd Street Gallery, 220 Third Street, Carnegie, Arthur Ford, whose lyrics have been published in literary works throughout the country, will read and discuss his poetry. The program is free to the public.

The monthly Gallery Walk series features Renaissance, Third Street and Black Swan galleries.

Also on Friday will be an exhibit of original animation art will begin at 6 p.m. at the Renaissance Gallery of Fine Art, 428 Washington Ave.

The exhibit will feature over 80 original and limited edition animation characters such as Snow White, Mickey Mouse, Daffy Duck, Betty Boop and Fred Flintstone.

“It’s immediately entertaining to anyone who ever sat in a movie theater or in front of a television set,” Renaissance co-owner Pat Linkowski-Jander said.

The collection will remain on display through Aug. 30.

Interested visitors can also sign up for poetry and prose workshops to be held monthly at Andrew Carnegie Free Library in conjunction with the Gallery Walk series.

Other events occurring on Friday and Saturday include jazz and ballet performances and drawing and yoga classes.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
