THE YEAR 2020 – A Public History Journal & Interactive Art Project
2020 is a year of Disease, Unease, Uncertainties but is also a time for Hope & Heroes.
At Mountain Made, a downtown Asheville art gallery, we are creating a public history journal of poetry, personal musings, thoughtful insights and yes, rants on “The Year 2020”. They could be funny, lighthearted or serious.
We want to offer our visitors an unique opportunity to share their poetry, thoughts, insights and personal experiences about the Year 2020.
We all have a lot of time to think about things this year. So we invite you to come by the gallery and take a moment put it on paper and share your thoughts with the world.
Our "virtual demo" artist for the year
While we aren’t able to do our live demos so far this year, we have another idea! Nancy Dillingham - one of Mountain Made's most popular local poets - will be our "virtual demo" artist for the year!
Nancy will be sharing her poetry and her 2020 experiences through her writings with our online audience. We will publish one of Nancy's 2020 poems each every week right here on MtnMade.com. We invite you to sign up for our newsletter for updates.
Nancy Dillingham is the author of twelve books of poetry and short fiction, the co-editor of four anthologies of women’s writing and is the poetry editor at the online literary magazine "The Speckled Trout Review" https://speckledtroutreview.com.
Her collection of poems Home was nominated for a Southern Independent Booksellers’ Alliance Award (SIBA). And her latest book is Like Headlines: New and Selected Poems. Acclaimed North Carolina poet and novelist, Fred Chappell (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Chappell) says about Dillingham's new book, "Poetry is news that stays news...we wait both for the future to appear and for the past to subside."
We invite you to sign up for our weekly newsletter for updates or if you prefer check out our blog to read published posts of Nancy's work.
