Sept 5 & 6: William L. Fox/ Mark Owens @ THE LAND/an art site

(If you're in the area, you might find this tempting, especially if you're interested in ecopoetics and matters concerning land and language.)
THE LAND/an art site is hosting a limited-seating, salon-style dinner and conversation with William L. Fox, director of the Nevada Museum of Art's Center for Art + Environment, on Saturday, September 5, from 6 to 9 pm at THE LAND/gallery in Albuquerque. Bill is a poet (silence and license, One Wave Standing, Reading Sand), independent scholar, lecturer, curator, and author of many books on landscape (including Driving by Memory, The Void, the Grid and the Sign, Terra Antarctica, Driving to Mars, and most recently Aereality: On the World from Above, published this year by Counterpoint).
This is a reservations-only, RSPV event, $50 per person, which includes dinner and wine. THE LAND is a nonprofit organization, so your $50 is tax-deductible.
On Sunday, September 6, beginning at 2 pm, Bill will continue the conversation at THE LAND's spectacular outdoor environmental art site near Mountainair, New Mexico. He'll be joined by Mark Owens, a poet and artist from Portland, OR, who will introduce and discuss a language-based environmental project he's been working on for THE LAND. The Sunday event is free.
