Art Gallery of Northumberland Spotlight Series 2: Stuart Ross
October 23, 2019, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Following a successful inaugural year, Spotlight Series returns to the Art Gallery of Northumberland in support of its growing art education initiative. Intimate and interactive, the 4-part artist series features local artists and their stories and passions for their art form from poetry, to opera, modern dance and animation film, along with the artists’ personal connections to Northumberland County.
Stuart Ross talks about his unusual four-decade career in Canadian literature—from selling thousands of his self-published chapbooks on the streets of Toronto, to editing the works of both new and prominent writers, to organizing reading series, book fairs, and writing workshops. Reading from his award-winning fiction, poetry, and essays, Stuart invites questions about his colourful life in the trenches of CanLit.
