Art preview: Art at the Stroll: Amy Turn Sharp X Alison Rose

At last, the moment is here: You can now put Amy Turn Sharp’s wondrous words of wanderlust on your walls, or take them to bed. A collaboration between the poet and Clintonville screen-printer Alison Rose will present Turn Sharp’s words on limited-edition prints (of various sizes) and even a pillow case. All of which can be yours at this Friday’s Indianola Stroll in Clintonville, where the poet will be at the screen-printer’s storefront for on-demand poems typed out on a vintage typewriter. The collaboration has been years in the making, Turn Sharp said, but the two sides never got around to it for whatever reason. “We’ve always talked about doing something together,” she said. “And the more I’ve seen Nick [Nocera] and Alison do word art, the more I was like, ‘Why are we waiting to do shit we want to do?’ This year I put a marker in the ground and was like, ‘I’m doing the things I want to do.” Other shops along that Indianola Avenue strip will also feature artists and store specials.
