Matt W. Miller “The Wounded for the Water”

mattmillerBorn and raised in Lowell, award-winning author Matt W. Miller will share his newly published collection of poetry, The Wounded for the Water. “In these lyrical meditations, we are witness to our own drowning in family and history, in politics and love. We are dragged across reefs and pounded into the shore, realizing ultimately that the only way to avoid drowning is to embrace the maelstrom and breathe in the water.” Following the author’s reading and discussion, participants can explore the works in H₂Oh!--Vital, Powerful, Sacred Water. This exhibition encouraged quilt and textile artists to interpret one of the most vital resources on earth in their own unique individual style, whether abstract, graphic, or representational.
