Local Published Poet to Display Art & Poetry at Center for the Arts in “Camera Eyes: On Poetry” Exhibit

Exhibit Dates: January 15-February 5, 2020
Meet the Poet Reception: January 18, 6-9 pm

The Center for the Arts is pleased to present “Camera Eyes: On Poetry”, featuring local published poet and photographer, JoAnn Lord Koff.

Camera Eyes: On Poetry cultivates a visceral connection between JoAnn’s original, timeless photographic images and the heartfelt vision within her accompanying poems. In trying to mix two mediums, visual images and printed words, JoAnn connects what is a “truism”, using pictures as words and vice versa. Photography is an instantaneous art form, which can rarely be duplicated. A poem on the other hand, often ferments before its fragile birth and requires time to mature in rewriting. Each relies on instinct and wants its audience to feel its meaning or expression nonetheless. The exhibit consists of approximately 30 pieces of poetry and photography based on JoAnn’s book “Sand, Pebbles, Fossils, and Rocks”, a 2019 nominee for the Library of Virginia Literary Award for Poetry. It will run concurrently with the Regional Poetry Out Loud competition at the Center for the Arts held on January 23, 1-4 pm.

About JoAnn Lord Koff:
JoAnn Lord Koff is a resident of Northern Virginia. Her philosophy of life is deeply rooted in her multi-cultural heritage. As a young child, she lived in Charny, France, and moved around within the United States while her father was in military. She attended Lynchburg College where she majored in English, Writing and Secondary Education. Her love of history, her passion for the arts and her taste of originality is clearly depicted in her book, the first from Sappho Publishing, Sand, Pebbles, Fossils, and Rocks. This book is a culmination of decades of poetry that she has written and photographs she has taken all around the world.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Woodbridge hosts a monthly Men’s Bible Study at Wegman’s Dining Room.

Hello, this is Armando from Woodbridge Public Auto Auction. On 11/16 and 11/23 we will be conducting a free raffle of a car (one car each Saturday) and the winner will only pay $1 per car won (our way of giving back to the community). We are hoping that we could turn this event into a canned Food drive to support those in need for the Thanksgiving holiday and a toy drive for Christmas. The idea is to give an extra ticket per person with non perishable items donated. Could you help by providing whatever resources you may have to boost the promotion of this event and support the cause?

Partnerships for the drive so far:

– Prince William Fire Department – fire safety – fire prevention and education
-Trapezaria Greek restaurant – Catering 4 events

Where: The Nokesville count area is centered on Merrimac Farm and covers nearly 180 sq. miles. It includes Merrimac Farm Wildlife Management Area, Cedar Run and Foggy Bottom Wetland Banks, Nokesville Park, and the Prince William County landfill as well as portions of Prince William Forest Park, Marine Corps Base Quantico, and Fauquier County.
Volunteer – 3 ways to help:
(1) Identify and count birds in the field, beginning birders welcome;
(2) Identify and count birds in your backyard;
(3) Make some chili, corn bread or dessert and/or help serve to cold, hungry birders at the Merrimac Stone House, beginning at 11:00 am.
Registration – Required to join a team and receive the meeting location. RSVP by contacting PWCA at alliance@pwconserve.org or 703-499-4954.
This annual citizen science event is part of the national survey led by the National Audubon Society. Now in its 120th year, the Christmas Bird Count captures a snapshot of bird populations in early winter and provides important information about their distribution, and changes over time.
You don’t have to be an expert birder to participate in the count. More eyes help spot more birds and the Christmas Bird Count is an exciting opportunity for beginning birders to connect with others and learn more about both birds and important habitats.

A service of peace and good will amid the noise and bustle of the Holidays. There will be carols, readings, prayers, quiet, and candles.
