Refraction of Wounds
Month of August,
Darrin-McHone Gallery
Harrisonburg, VA

Refraction of Wounds is a conversation between two artists on struggle and heartache.   Poets/Artists Angela M. Carter and Dave Buracker present abstract paintings that represent their own personal struggles; they respond to one another’s visuals with their own respective poetry.

Dave Buracker’s poetry has been published in over a dozen journals and reviews including “The Amherst Review,” “Rock Falls Literary Review,” and William and Mary’s “The Gallery.” Dave also helped produce the first radio show in the United States dedicated to voicing young writers at JMU’s WXJM in the early 90s – the show was later syndicated nationally. He has released more than 25 electronic music albums worldwide under various names such as “Maduro,” “Darkened,” and “Teleoptyk,” has completed numerous abstract acrylic paintings (being invited to a local DC area art residency program) and has professionally written comic books. Dave graduated from Bridgewater College in 1996 and currently lives in the Washington DC area.

Angela M. Carter, a poet, motivational speaker and author of full-length poetry memoir, Memory Chose a Woman’s Body (Unbound CONTENT). Born and raised in a Virginia farming town of less than 280 country-folk, Angela moved abroad for nearly five years, and returned, along with her family, to Virginia with a new-found voice to speak of the past hidden life that she experienced. Her memoir articles have been published by Our Stories Untold and Gutsy Living; her poetry publications include several webzines and anthologies. She is a poetry editor of CityLitRag (NYC webzine), co-coordinates Rocktown Poetry Circle, and is passionate about speaking of topics that most are silent about.

Nine poems displayed as part of the Collins Center Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Larkin Arts, Harrisonburg, VA, April 11-20, 2014.
