Three art galleries are opening their doors to poetry readings this weekend in Ulster County to combine spoken word and poetry with visual art.  Kingston Museum of Contemporary Arts, Center for Photography at Woodstock, and R&F Handmade Paints are all participating this is unique approach to combining the arts.  

“I thought the writing would enhance the photographic artworks and the themes that were distilled from looking at them,” said curator Elizabeth Line.
