More than Just Lit and Art

The next event in the Lit and Art Reading Series takes place on Sunday, March 30 at The Watermark Gallery. As always, it includes a diverse selection of featured readers, live music, original art, wine and refreshments, and the opportunity to mix and mingle with the local literary and arts community.

But this month’s Lit & Art is more than that. It is also a celebration of Persian New Year. And the closing reception of Manzar’s art exhibit, “Women West, Women East & Global Peace.”
The event takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. and may go longer if you want to stay to enjoy the celebration with Persian music, food and entertainment.
Our Featured readers in March are William Patrick Tandy, Julie Fisher, Sam J. Schmidt, g emil rutter and Diane Sahms Gaurnieri with music by Pop-Grass Banjo Dude Jacob Panic.
The art exhibit celebrates women from the east and the west and expresses a desire for world peace. “I hope in the near future we will have more wise women involved in politics,” said Manzar. “I believe this will lead us to a more peaceful world.”
Manzar, a resident of Baltimore, will be at the opening reception to talk about her work. She was born in Tehran, Iran. She has exhibited her work throughout the country and around the world.
“I strive for peace and beauty in all my works,” said Manzar, who also coordinates a “Teach Your Heart with Art” workshop.
The Watermark Gallery is located on the second floor of the Bank of America Building at 100 South Charles Street across from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.
