Amy Letter’s poem “*Comes” is paired with Carolyn Guinzio’s photograph. Amy Letter’s “Art” and “Punnett” are visual pieces, created by Amy.

Maryrose Larkin’s poetry is paired with Carolyn Guinzio’s photographs. The images to accompany Maryrose Larkin’s “cure fraction” were made by photographing words projected onto various surfaces.  In some cases, the words were first layered onto a photograph already containing a surface (tree or sky, for instance) then projected onto a sheet to warp and texture the text. That was photographed and then in turn projected on an outdoor surface and photographed again to make the final image.

Emmalea Russo’s poetry is paired with Rae Mahaffey’s paintings. The paintings appear in the following order: Sky Drops and Teasers, 2012, oil on wood panel, 36 x 36 inches, Survival is no Simple Matter, 2012, oil on wood panel, 36 x 36 inches, Reeling, 2011, oil on wood panel, 40 x 36 inches, Elucubration of a Madman, 2010, oil on wood panel, 16 x 12 inches. Rae Mahaffey explores color, pattern and perspective to describe elements in the world around us.  She paints abstractly, expressing visual experiences and the subconscious through formal artistic means.
