Virtual Gathering of Artists to Feature Poet Mark Widrlechner

Ames, Iowa – We’re going virtual! The March Gathering of Artists will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, April 22 from 7 – 8 p.m. Celebrate Earth Day with Ames Community Arts Council poet Mark Widrlechner. Mark will read from his most recent works, including his chapbook, Winter Storm Warning which begins, “Wrapped around a barkless branch, Poetry is a beautiful snake waiting for the right moment to strike.”

Participants will need to pre-register for the event to attend. Please visit our website [] or email for registration information.

Artists and art enthusiasts of all types are invited to meet other artists, get feedback, get inspired and have fun. The events are free and open to all.  Please join us in this new format until we are once again able to gather together in person.

The Gathering of Artists is hosted by the Ames Community Arts Council and made possible with the support of the City of Ames Commission on the Arts.
