Studio Around the Corner presents ‘The Poetry of Painting & Treasures’ featuring the paintings, prints, and collages of Michelle Raspanti and Sue Fehring, as well as, the poetry of Kristina Johnson. 

Painter and printmaker, Michelle Raspanti graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from the College of Saint Rose.  Her work is inspired by the images of the existing world. Ms. Raspanti’s work has been shown at Arts on the Lake and Brewster’s annual Art Beat.

Poet Kristina Johnson graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Albany.  Her work covers an array of subjects dealing with human emotions, nature and theory.  ‘The Poetry of Painting & Treasures’ features Ms. Johnson’s poems inspired by Ms. Raspanti’s paintings and prints.

Sue Fehring’s work includes paintings, collage, and jewelry design.  Ms. Fehring graduated with a B.A. in Art from SUNY Plattsburgh, and studied mixed media and collage with Christopher Staples.  Her work is inspired by color, form and texture and their interaction with each other.  Ms. Fehring’s work has been shown at the Putnam Arts Council and the Garrison Art Center.

This is the first exhibit for all three artists at Studio Around the Corner.

I just came home from Studio Around the Corner after hanging 'The Poetry of Painting & Treasures' and it's a gorgeous show with three incredible artists. We have never incorporated poetry and paintings and it is truly a delicious combination. Also the jewelry that will be shown is extraordinary! As anyone who has ever been to an opening reception at the Studio knows they are always a blast with wonderful art, great people, and amazing vibes...hope to see everyone on Friday night from 7pm - 9pm. It's a great thing to do for yourself...have fun! Dawn Willis
