In September, Tower poets were invited to go out to Dundas to pick a picture to write a poem about. I participated and picked out a lovely picture and wrote a poem.
We got there early enough to go on the art walk which began at 1 p.m. Jeff and Fran were the leaders on this walk and at each store that had exhibited the work, they stopped and read the poetry aloud. It was very nice indeed to have it read so well.
My own poem was exhibited but unfortunately it had fallen down so nobody could read it. Jennifer mentioned it to Jeff that they had not read my poem, so he was very kind and read it out loud from his typed pages.
It was lovely to hear the poems read out loud especially on such a gorgeous fall day.
After the art walk, we all went into the Carnegie Gallery. I was very happy to see that the new elevator was now in operation so I used that.
Our eyes fell on pottery, jewellery, felt work and art on the walls as we entered this lovely spot. There was a tea table set up with several types of tea provided by a local tea shop. The lady was very gracious as she served this elegant beverage in delicate English tea cups. The name of the company which provided the tea is Coco Tea, and it is on 63 Main Street in Dundas, Ontario. Their telephone number is 905-627-7322.
People were encouraged to partake of the light refreshments provided by the Gallery - different types of cheeses, a fruit platter and different types of sweets including shortbread cookies.
The readings started shortly after 2 p.m.
