ST. PETERSBURG - The Studio at 620 is pleased to present an exhibit of visual poetry by Eleanor Eichenbaum. The exhibit will open with a reception on April 7 at 7:30 p.m. and will feature a presentation by the artist.

Eichenbaum explores poetic practice using author Virginia Woolf's letters as a point of departure toward her own writing, exploring the acts and intellectual processes of erasure, visual sketching, and generative composing with language.
The work is guided by concerns of process, ephemerality, and the abstract space between words and outside of language.
Eichenbaum is based in St. Petersburg, where she teaches and sometimes swims. She holds a graduate degree in Architectural Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to relocating in St. Petersburg, Eichenbaum lived in Brooklyn and worked in the field of architectural design. She is also an independent curator of visual arts and has organized exhibitions in New York, New Jersey, and California. Eichenbaum will complete the Master of Liberal Arts degree at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg in spring 2014.
The Studio@620 is a nonprofit arts venue at 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg.
