Ohio writer Nathan Lipps will use his Glen Arbor Arts Center artist’s residency to take a deeper dive into a manuscript-in-progress, a group of poems titled Seiche. The term “seiche” refers to an atmospheric phenomenon that occurs on large bodies of water – such Lake Michigan – that causes severe oscillation of the water. Lipps will talk about the water, and his work on the poems describing it, during a public presentation May 12, noon, at the GAAC, 6031 S. Lake St., Glen Arbor. The presentation is free.
Since the 1990s, the GAAC has welcomed visiting artists who want to immerse themselves in their work. The GAAC’s Artist-in-Residence program offers up to seven, creative practitioners a two-week respite from their daily lives in order to focus on a new idea that needs space, or to develop an on-going project.
