The So & So Series began in Boston in 2006 and moved to Raleigh in 2008. Featuring both local and national poets, So & So has hosted more than 300 readers, including Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winners. In order to connect more fully with Raleigh's arts community, So & So has partnered with CAM Raleigh once more for the 2015 season. Poets will be responding to pieces of their choosing in whatever exhibit is being shown at the time of their reading. The hope is that this will start a dialogue between the poets and the artists and may even lead to interesting and exciting collaborations.

This month's readers will be Laurie Fillipelli, David Need, & Laura Saurborn Young.

Come and chat in an informal setting with Artist Sarah Anne Johnson and Curator Steven Matijcio.

The work of Sarah Anne Johnson (b.1976 Winnipeg, Canada) playfully, but pointedly bridges dualities between the real and imagined; factual and fictive; lived and desired. She works from an unapologetically personal perspective that reflects her growing concerns for the world, combined with the pursuit of a utopian place that re-mains tantalizingly out of reach. At every step Johnson attempts to nudge reality closer to her ideals, supplementing quixotic photographs with humble dioramas, sculpey figurines, painterly interludes, handcrafted doll-houses and all manner of modifications performed upon the photo itself. This survey exhibition brings together her five major bodies of work to date, along with two large-scale installations set in furtive, shimmering forest. As a whole, Wonderland presents the first opportunity to trace the continuity and inspiring evolution of this young artist's practice.
