Niche Poet Laureate Christopher Luna invites you to join us for an evening of poetry in Czech and English with sculptor Olinka Broadfoot.
Olinka Broadfoot is an accomplished sculptor and painter who recently returned to Oregon from Prague. Her work is currently available through TONDACH Sculpture Park (Jircany, Czech Republic), Siler Gallery (Portland, Oregon), TONDACH (Stod, Czech Republic), and RiverSea Gallery (Astoria, Oregon). She was included in the 2007 edition of ART IN AMERICA, Guide to Museums, Galleries and Artists. Her artwork is found in private and public collections all over the world. According to Olinka, “My work is varied because life is varied and I create from at least three different cultural backgrounds. I work in a wide range of mediums, reflecting the language of whatever medium happens to be on hand. I enjoy the challenge. One medium releases the energy for the other.” About the poems that she will share at this special event, Olinka comments: “These are mostly poems written after my husband committed suicide. It was the one thing besides sculpture and music that made any sense to me. They follow the particular form of grief and healing that this sort of death brings.” For more information about Olinka Broadfoot and her artwork, go to: www.olinkabroadfootgallery.com.
