Retold is an invitational exhibit featuring 9 Mid Atlantic artists who were asked to consider the words of T.S. Eliot found in The Art of Assemblage/MOMA 1961 by William C. Seitz.

The memory throws up high and dry
A crowd of twisted things;
A twisted branch upon the beach
Eaten smooth, and polished
As if the world gave up
The secret of its skeleton,
Stiff and white.
A broken spring in a factory yard,
Rust that clings to the form that the strength has left
Hard and curled and ready to snap.

– T. S. Eliot (1917)

Poetry is a visual language; The culmination of this show brings together photographers, sculptors and mixed media artists who contribute to
a visual dialog that retell the story. Come see for yourself.
