Polymathic Sam Magavern (lawyer, teacher, author and poet) collaborated with visual artist Monica Angle to create “Noah’s Ark,” 48 poems and 24 watercolor works on paper available in both virtual and analog versions. The book of art and poetry is published by BlazeVOX [books].

The artwork featured in the chapbook is on view in PAUSA art house (19 Wadsworth St.) – just around the bend from Allen Street – in Buffalo’s historic Allentown neighborhood throughout the month of June. Angle has named this exhibit of her work “Smudged Ink” and it hangs throughout the arts space. The portfolio of the “Noah’s Ark” work may be viewed on the artist’s website.

At 7 p.m. June 4 and June 11, there will be evenings of acoustic music in PAUSA’s back room, followed by a reading by Sam Magavern at 8 p.m. He will sign copies of his books, available for purchase at the venue.
