Please join us at Community Arts Phoenixville for a poetry reading by Philadelphia-based poets Terra Rene, Lora Mathis, and Richelle Kota, followed by the book release & opening reception of "Processes," an exhibition featuring the illustrated visual poetry of Terra Rene which explores the transient nature of internal experiences.
POETRY READING: 6-7pm
OPENING RECEPTION: 7-9PM
Terra Rene is a Philadelphia-based writer, visual artist, and the founder / editor of Recenter Press. Most of her work explores unlearning toxic conditioning, the nonlinear process of following intuition, and mystical experiences that have emerged out of trauma as much as the fruition of dreams. She is the author of the illustrated collection of poems "An Old Blue Light," and her work has appeared in The Huffington Post, BUST Magazine, Cordella Magazine, and more. You can find her on Instagram @aterraterra.
Richelle Kota is a writer, nature enthusiast, and a student living in Philadelphia. Earlier this year she released her first self-published work, Where There Were Roses: A Memoir Through Poems. She aspires to live a very simple life on a farm with many pigs, goats, and dogs. You can find her on Instagram @tiniestdad.
Lora Mathis is a nonbinary poet, musician, and visual artist who uses their work as a tool for healing and self-reclamation. Author of "Instinct to Ruin," they coined the term "radical softness as a weapon" and have been featured in Polyester, BUST, Bitch, and The Guardian. You can find them on Instagram @lora.mathis.
