The Poetry Place at Clinton art gallery

About The Poetry Place


In our Poetry Place, Clinton Art Gallery offers a selection of poetry publications by Connecticut poets for you to purchase. You can linger over the books, read  poems and take a poem to keep from the poetry basket.

At our Sunday poetry readings you are welcome to enjoy the presentation and we also invite you to participate in the open mic sessions. Free Admission and complimentary light refreshments served. Please join us at the Clinton Art Gallery, 20 East Main Street, Clinton, CT .

For additional information, contact Pat Barone at or 203-627-4148.



The readings, in the Laurel Anne Olcott Art Center at 20 East  Main Street in the heart of Clinton,  will begin at 2:00 PM and will as usual feature energetic and engaging  readings by local poets at the very popular Sunday Series open mic.  Before and after the reading and open mic, and during the break, the  audience will have a chance to enjoy the beautiful art work and crafts  on display, as well as a rich selection of poetry books, and also  discover the many classes, which include a variety of workshops in both  art and writing, offered at the Clinton Art Gallery.
