A.C. Everson

The “Pinata Queen” of Albany is a very busy local artist who has been a featured poet at many of the events (Albany Word Fest, LarkFest, Poets Speak Loud) over the years and usually brings a special pinata to mark the occasion.  She even made a special one for last year’s Roast of Dan Wilcox.

A.C. Everson –a.k.a. the piñata queen– a local homegrown poet, sculptor and performance artist. I attempt to shed a new light on the many uses of piñatas (that I make) as an art form, and as the main feature in my various Breaking My Art performances which I have done coast to coast, along with reading my poetry in three countries (including this one) I have three chap books entitled Soap Box and My Two Cents , Love AC Style and And Then Some that I print myself and are available upon request. I also have recorded two CD’s “Words With” and “Idi Annine and the Mama’s” with Albie, Mitch Elrod, Steve Candlen, Tony Parino, Bill Rella and Mother Judge to name a few of the area’s most excellent musicians backing me up. They are available upon request. Meaning I burn them myself.

A.C. kicked off the evening at the Discard Avant Garb fashion show this past Saturday as you can see in this video from Bryan Thomas.

We are very happy to have some new poetry from A.C., My Libido is Missing, on the site.
