Anthony DeMarco, Parma High School Alumni, retired Parma High Art Teacher, and Board Member of Parma Area Fine Arts Council, currently has his photographic work included in Cleveland Photo Fest, Altered Landscapes/Vision & Poetry Show, at Mac’s Backs-Books on Coventry. The show opened on October 25th, with a poetry reading at 7 p.m. Local poets and photographers shared their physical and emotionally altered landscapes in a live presentation. Photographers Kat Cade, Mary Ford, Samantha Bias, Janet Century, Tim Lachina, Anthony DeMarco, Todd Hoak, and Catherine McManus provided the visual stimulus through their surrealistic approach to internal and external landscapes. Eight poets performed their emotional reactions to the surrealistic photographs on display. Poets Krystal Sierra, Jim Szudy, Nicole Hennessy, Jimi Remick, Miguel Moor, John Burroughs, Siaarra Freeman and Doc Janning challenged the audience with their observations and perceptions. This show runs through November 30th.
