Daubs of Meaning
Members of Lubbock's Ad Hoc writing group—Marilyn Westfall, Janice Whittington, Melissa Brewer, Michelle Kraft, Sheila Delony, Barbara Brannon, and Richard Jespers—are displaying their own photography, as well as graphics that have inspired them, in the Graffiti Educational Building, where their October 21 reading will take place. The title is inspired by the words of Anne Carson, who regards her words like elements of painting: "It's about the way they interact with each other as daubs of meaning . . . and you stand back and see a story emerge from the way that the things are placed next to each other. You can also do that with language."
