In anticipation of Poem 88's Annual Valentine's Salon, this exhibition is inspired by the Henry Purcell pastoral song, "Nymphs and Shepherd Come Away," crica 1692.
Poem 88 artists In Kyoung Chun, Judy Henson, Carol John, Julia Kjelgaard, Sharon Shapiro, Hannah Tarr, Zuzka Vaclavik, Nancy VanDevender, and guests Faith McClure and Cynthia Farnell explore images and themes from the Renaissance including Classical mytho-logy, love songs, paintings and architecture.
